Chapter Activities

Membership is open to anyone who is interested in or who simply appreciates needlework.

Most chapters meet monthly with programs for all embroidery levels. Monthly meetings focus on stitching, with hands-on programs, slide presentations, and lectures on a wide variety of stitching techniques.

Many chapters have interest groups and several offer both day and evening meetings.

Each chapter publishes a newsletter or meeting notice with information on upcoming programs and activities.

Annual dues vary from chapter to chapter, and include national and regional dues as well as a subscription to the EGA magazine Needle Arts.


If you do not live close enough to a chapter to make membership feasible, or are not able to attend chapter meetings for other reasons, consider joining EGA as a member-at-large. You receive all the benefits of Chapter Membership, except you cannot vote or hold office.
