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!

Happy Spring!  It’s been a long time coming and I hope that you all came through the winter relatively unscathed, and with more stitching accomplished than you expected.

I want to extend a special thank you to all of our treasurers for getting the annual reports in on time with no problems at all! I greatly appreciate your efforts.

A shout out goes to Connecticut River Valley Chapter on their 50th anniversary!

I have received the opportunity drawing tickets to win an all expense paid trip to the 2016 National Seminar in Alexandria, VA. For just $10 you can have a chance for a free trip to Seminar! I will have the tickets with me at our Seminar, the June board meeting, or you can contact me via email, CrewelGirl45@comcast.net .

Hope to see you at the end of the month at our Stitching Go Round Seminar in Warwick!

Happy Stitching,
