The mission of the The Embroiderers' Guild of America (EGA) is to inspire passion for the needle arts through education and the celebration of its heritage.

Our chapter meets the EGA mission in a variety of ways: meetings and workshops, show & share stitch-ins, study groups, stitching retreats, community service projects, and our biennial exhibits. The emphasis of our chapter is on education; no skill level is required and we are all ready to share our knowledge with other members.

We define the needle arts as any technique that uses a needle and a thread. Our interests and skills range from the traditional – crewel, cross stitch and needlepoint – to the more unusual – beading, temari and stumpwork.

Whether you are a beginner or an experienced stitcher, you can learn more about the needle arts with our meetings and workshops, as well as enjoy the friendship of others interested in the needle arts. Please feel free to come to any meeting as a guest and find out why we are such enthusiastic stitchers!
