WHO: Who would have thought that an event focused on a single topic – embroidery – would draw attendees from multiple Kingdoms for five years running?
Because of you, we have enjoyed five years of sharing, five years of learning, and most importantly, five years of an ever-growing community of stitchers!
Whether this is your first time putting needle to thread or you’re an embroidery veteran, if you’ve been waiting for the know-how or the motivation, or if you are already Itchin’ to Get Stitchin’, this weekend event devoted to the art of the needle will enable and inspire you!
The Shire of Abhainn Ciach Ghlais hopes you will join us as we celebrate this milestone!
WHAT: The Academy of St. Clare features:
• Small, specialized classes on single topics. These classes are usually one hour in length and are taught by embroiderers for embroiderers. They require no special sign-up before the event.

• Time to spend with fellow embroiderers, relishing the relaxed atmosphere with others who share your passion for stitching.
