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 would like to first say that I am honored to be serving as Region Director for the New England Region for the next three years. We have had wonderful directors in the past, so I have big shoes to fill. I really look forward to serving and helping our region at all levels of the organization.
We have a few great things to look forward to over the next year. In May, we will be hosting our first stitching retreat, using part of the Pillips Grant scholarship that was given to us by National. The retreat will feature
Sylvia Murariu who is teaching a really cute surface embroidery piece called “Hello Cutie”. I hope you can attend!
At our meeting in March, the SOME Seminar committee unveiled the faculty for next year’s Region Seminar in Maine. There will be a mix of one day and two day classes to choose from. I know I was even more excited about the seminar after seeing the pieces.
When I was at the National board meeting in Louisville in March, I was able to visit National Headquarters for the first time. If you are ever in the area, I encourage everyone to stop in and say hello. The space is gorgeous and holds lots of hidden treasures.
I hope everyone has an amazing spring with lots of stitching time!
Happy Stitching!
Kari Boardman NER RD
