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 am writing this while being on a short Fourth of July holiday. I took a very small (10 seat)
plane to get here, and obviously packing lightly was of great importance. I found myself
laughing as I realized that my biggest dilemma was not what clothes to bring, but knowing
that I could only bring one embroidery project! So, did I manage to bring just one? No…but
I did keep it down to two. One of them was my Quaker Ball kit from Denise Harrington-
So, if you could only choose one project this Summer, what would it be? Please
remember, as you work on your projects, send me pictures of your progress – I’d love to
share them on our NER Facebook page.
Speaking of our Facebook page, did you know that National has started a Pinterest page?
If you are looking for stitching inspiration, check it out!
Happy stitching!
