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

Hi Everyone!

It’s hard to believe that the holidays are already upon us! I hope that you all are able to take some time to stitch and spend time with your Chapters at the many holiday gatherings planned.  I think that one of my favorite times of the season is the ornament exchange at our holiday dinner out!

Thank you to everyone that has followed our New England Region Facebook page! And for those of you, who haven’t done so, swing by and like us at the New England Region Embroiderers’ Guild of America. If anyone has a finished project, an upcoming EGA function that they would like to share, or even just something of interest embroidery-wise please send me the information and I would be happy to post it!

Our 2015 Stitching Go Round is right around the corner next April. The brochures have all been mailed out, so if you have not received one yet, please let us know.  This promises to be an awesome Seminar with wonderful classes, a great location and truly beautiful Name Tags!!

Happy Holidays everyone!

Beth
