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! I’m hoping that you are all finding plenty of time to stitch in the middle of the sultry days of summer. 

I wanted to thank everyone that attended the Spring into Stitching Seminar - because of you all, we had yet another successful Seminar! Once again we will be able to use our profits to underwrite our upcoming Region Day, and Group Correspondence Courses.

And speaking of those upcoming events, I really hope to see you all at Region Day this Fall. While the original deadline for Gary Clarke’s class may have passed the deadline has now been extended to July 31, 2013 so there is still time to sign up for Gary’s class as well as Joni Stevenson’s class, or to take a day to work on your “WIPs” at Studio Time! Deadline for signing up is September 1st.

Also keep an eye on the calendar on our NER website and in this newsletter for upcoming GCC’s as well as many upcoming classes offered by our Chapters.

Lastly, a reminder – the National Bylaws Chairman is eagerly awaiting your Bylaws for review if they haven’t already been sent in.

Happy Stitching!
