Stitches in Tyme Embroidery Guild
In 2003, several ladies who belonged to North Bay Quilting Guilds decided to form Stitches in Tyme to learn more about embroidery.
Members of the guild have learned many skills such as cross-stitch, ribbon embroidery, Blackwork, Hardanger, Sashiko, wool work embroidery on greeting cards and beadwork
Members exchange valuable information related to their interests. While group projects are on the go, members are encouraged and free to do their own thing.

The time is from 9:00am to 12:00pm
