Award-winning EAC member and teacher, Lorene Salt, has a display at the Colleen Abbott Gallery in the Aurora Public Library, Aurora, Ontario. Titled Needlepoint Taken to the Nth Degree, this show features several pieces of Lorene’s colourful works. The show runs from September 5 to October 6, 2017. Please confirm the times at the Aurora Public Library website

For those who aren’t able to travel to Aurora, the Aurora Public Library has posted a video to YouTube, where you can see and hear Lorene talking about some her pieces on display. 

As part of the show, Lorene will be stitching in public on Saturday, September 30 from 2 to 4:30 p.m. It’s so appropriate that this event is part of the library’s Culture Days events!

To experience some of the Lorene Salt design magic, you can join her in any of her three project courses currently available through EAC.


For those looking for a short project (that is a great stash-buster, too), Lorene’s upcoming cyber course through EAC is Kelmscott. Register soon so you don’t miss out – the deadline is September 30, 2017! 
This cyber course is offered in three lessons, one a month for three months, plus an extra month for "life"! Classes begin November 1, 2017.

Lorene is also offering a beginner level project course, Shockwave, over the course of a year. Six lessons every two months allow ample time for people with busy and hectic work schedules to take this course.  The timeframe can be adjusted.
