Membership - Chapter Directory

Technique: Brazilian Embroidery
Stitched by: Albertsen

EGA chapters exist to foster the highest standards of excellence in the practice of the art of embroidery through an active program of education and study, and to preserve the heritage of the art of embroidery. We have a very diverse membership ranging from those who are beginning their first stitching project to people who teach nationally. We all have in common an appreciation of the art of stitchery and an insatiable desire to learn and share with our fellow stitchers.

All chapters welcome guests at monthly meetings. Meetings usually include show-and-tell and a program that may be a demonstration, mini-class or guest speaker, in addition to short business meetings. Most chapters also perform volunteer work for their community.

Chapters, like people, have their own personality. If there are several chapters in your area, consider visiting all of them to see if one is a better fit for you than another. Your primary interests in embroidery may fall in line with one group better than another group, although all EGA chapters cover a wide variety of techniques and interests.

January 2018: Contact information will be added for each chapter in the near future. Thank you for your patience.
