Journée nationale travaux à l'aiguille en publique graphic image

EAC has set up a national day for stitching in public to help make the general public aware that yes, people do still do needlework. The last Saturday in September has been chosen in hopes that it will help guilds attract new members at the traditional start of a new season of stitching. If the last Saturday in September - the 24th this year, doesn't work for your group, feel free to set another date.

National Stitch-in-Public Day resources have been added to the new EAC website. The resources are provided in such a way that you can edit and use them to suit your needs.

If your group chooses to stitch in public, please share your story!
