Open House is planned for Tuesday April 26, 2022 from 1-5 pm at Kortright Presbyterian Church in Guelph. This is a free show of the work of about 75 artists, showcasing our classes and work we have done outside of class. Since we have missed displaying our work in 2020 and 2021 this should be a tremendous show covering three years’ work!


  • Stitch in Public! Update
    September 7, 2021
    Stitch in Public logo

    Here is another chance for you to get together with other stitchers. It’s National Stitch-in-Public Day as declared by the Embroiderers’ Association of Canada. Every year it is the last Saturday in September and that makes it September 25th this year (2021).

    CEGG will reprise our gathering from World Embroidery Day. We’ve been looking at the weather forecast for Stitch-in-Public Day and it looks like it may rain. Let’s go to Riverside Park in Guelph, instead. The park can be accessed from the entrance with the stone pillars on Woolwich Street or from Marilyn Drive.
    There are 2 covered picnic areas in the park (not counting the Concession stand). The larger picnic area has a red/brown sort of roof (DMC 3778). It’s on the ring road between the playground and the Enabling Garden. There is a good parking lot there, too. Sat Sept 25th, 10 am to noon. Bring a lawn chair if you wish (there are picnic tables) and dress warmly.

    And if you, dear reader, do not live near Guelph please find a nice park or a mall or your own front yard and stitch in public!

  • Registration for 2021-22
    August 4, 2021

    We’ve been thinking about our upcoming 2021-22 year and the easing of the pandemic. We are not yet ready to resume in-person classes in September so we plan to continue our online meetings. We’ll meet for a Stitch ‘n Chat on Tuesday September 7th at 10 am and we can answer all your Registration questions then.

    We’re very excited to announce that our first online program will be a talk by Dr. Susan Kay-Williams from the Royal School of Needlework! Her topic will be With Just a Needle and Thread.

    We hope to resume live classes in January of 2022 and are making plans for that, at this time.

    If you are interested in joining us and would like more information and details on how to Register, please send us an email at and we’ll send you our August newsletter which will also give you the online meetings schedule.
