About Virtual Threads: Just like any other EAC chapter, Virtual Threads members have the opportunity to share their passions for stitching, their work (both finished and works in progress), and engage in chapter doings as well as EAC's activities and benefits. Rather than gathering in a brick-and-mortar location, the chapter "meets" here on EAC-VT. Most interaction is via group posts (email discussion) as well as photo sharing, and utilizing the other Groups.io features. VTHome (where you are now) is the chapter's main site. It's where the chapter engages in community-based discussion with fellow members, shares their work & experiences, and generally has fun together. Subgroups offer specialized focus for things like classes, workshops, special interest groups, activities, and administrative needs such as meetings & committees.
Benefits of membership in EAC Virtual Threads include taking part in chapter meetings, online workshops (some exclusive to EAC Virtual Threads) with renowned teachers (both international and domestic), challenges & exchanges that motivate you to expand your stitching and designing, and classes & special interest groups to pursue your dedicated interests. There are also lots of other activities and opportunities (such as online Retreats). You can take part in all of these (and more) - all from the comfort of home, just as long as you have on-line access via computer or web-enabled mobile device.
