Oct 16   Stash Sale!!
Usually we do this event in the winter but this year we are moving it to the fall so our snowbirds can participate. They have expressed the wish to contribute and to shop and have some of the fun of the sale. You all know what you need to do!

Nov 6   Remembrance Day: 100th Anniversary of the end of WW1
We will be making “bleuets” or cornflowers which are used similar to our use of the poppy. They became a remembrance symbol for the veterans in France at the end of WW1. Wear your poppy. Come and learn more and make a bleuet.

Nov 20   Learn a new stitch
Learn the Bayeux stitch, a fill-in stitch widely used in the famous Bayeux tapestry. This stitch will be useful to you too.

  • Mike Parr Embroidery
    October 13, 2018

    We are fortunate to have arranged a 2 day workshop with Mike Parr for November 15 & 16, 2018. This is a great chance to gain some skill working with both silk and gold. The provided kit gives all the materials to make a small minaudiere-style purse but, once you’ve stitched it up, you can decide what it will become. Now that CEG Guelph’s own members have had their chance to sign up, we are opening this workshop up to the public. Skill level: Intermediate. Cost is $200 which includes 2 days of instruction, lunch both days and full kit with minaudiere, silk threads, silk dupione, gold threads. Contact

  • ONN Challenge
    September 9, 2018

    Are you up for the ONN Challenge? When the Ontario Network of Needleworkers get together, they like to show off what they can do. This year, the Challenge is “Gathering Together”.  This could mean a group project. Or did you think of smocking? Or ???

    The Challenge projects from all the Guilds will be displayed together at the Annual Meeting of the ONN on October 26th. Are you up for the challenge?
