Traditional Japanese Embroidery in New England

The Merrimack Valley Chapter of the Embroiderers’ Guild of America, Inc (EGA) hosts multi-level classes in Traditional Japanese Embroidery several times each year. Classes are typically held at locations within 25 miles of Boston, Massachusetts and convenient to major highways.

Classes are taught by a teacher certified in Traditional Japanese Embroidery by the Japanese Embroidery Center (JEC) in Dunwoody, GA, and they follow the JEC's "phase" approach where a student learns new techniques and applications with each new project in the series. Classes run four or five days to allow for comprehensive instruction of new techniques, but stitchers experienced in Japanese Embroidery may opt to attend for fewer days.
