Stitching Stories  September 5, 2020 to February 28, 2021

In these unprecedented times there is solace in tradition and creativity. The Embroiderers’ Association of Canada preserves traditional techniques and promotes new challenges in the art of embroidery.

The Embroiderer’s Association of Canada is now almost 50 years old. They have almost 40 chapters and more than 1,500 members from all across Canada and beyond. They have grown into a vital and exciting organization. They also maintain a Heritage Collection with over 1000 items. The collection began in 1991 with the donation of textiles from the Leonida Leatherdale estate. One of the oldest pieces in the collection is a sampler from 1758. In 2003, chapter members from the Regina Stitchery Guild (RSG) partnered with Government House as a place to house and care for this collection.
