Meetings

The Toronto Guild of Stitchery meets at

Blythwood Road Baptist Church
80 Blythwood Road
Toronto, ON - M4N 1A6

which is half way between Eglinton Ave and Lawrence Ave, just east of Yonge St.

The Guild meets on the first and third Thursdays of the month, from September to June. If the first Thursday in September is before Labour Day, or the first Thursday in January is New Year’s Day, then the normal monthly meeting will be on the second Thursday instead.

The first meeting of the month includes a business meeting and a program. The second meeting of the month is a stitching day, where members bring their work and stitch together.

The day meeting begins at 10:00 am. The evening meeting begins at 7:00 pm.

There is parking behind the church. Please do not park on the road.

 

Calendar 2021–2022
