New England Region - The Embroiderers' Guild of America

Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont

Welcome!

to the Web site of The New England Region of The Embroiderers' Guild of America, Inc. (EGA). We invite you to come join us, sharing our love of stitching, as we preserve the needle art of embroidery and participate in educational programs. EGA has approximately 20,000 members in 354 chapters in 13 Regions scattered across the United States, plus one chapter on-line. Our National Headquarters and the Margaret Parshall Gallery are located in Louisville, Kentucky.

The New England Region Inc., affectionately known by its members as NER, has approximately 875 members in 12 chapters. These chapters and their area groups are located in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut.

As a region, we offer Group Correspondence Courses, a Region Day educational program or tour and other educational opportunities. A multi-day seminar or stitch-in is held each year giving region members a chance to study with nationally recognized teachers.

Don’t forget to remind new members that we have a beautiful NER pin. Then pick up pins for members, both new and old, who would like one. The cost per pin is $5.00.

Message from NER Director

Well, at long last Spring appears to have arrived! I admit to liking Winter, but even I found this Winter was just too much. I hope that you have all come thru unscathed and that you have found some time to enjoy some of this sunshine.

If you haven’t had a chance yet, try to make some time to peruse the recent copy of NeedleArts magazine. We have two New England members that have been featured in this issue. First is Salley Mavor, a member from Cape Cod who does amazing three-dimensional embroidery. There is a listing of scheduled viewings of her work through the summer.

The second New Englander featured is J. Marsha Michler, from Southern Maine, who recently completed the Master Craftsman Program in Color. She has written a wonderful article explaining her experience with this program.

Congratulations to both Salley and Marsha!

The current issue of NeedleArts was also featured in Mary Corbett’s Needle ‘N Thread blog in the beginning of March that attracted 51 new EGA members in 48 hours!
