Welcome 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 9 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.


As you all know EGA Seminar 2020, BOSTON STITCH PARTY has been rescheduled, with this in mind Merchandise and especially Nametag Kits have beenkept in circulation and still be for sale.  We need to keep Boston Stitch Party in the forefront of everyone’s minds and what better way than to use and display your Boston Stitch Party merchandise and Name Tag.

Logo Article

                The EGA  Product Sales and Design Committee is a group of 8 individuals from across the USA.  All are chapter members, some are officers, and still others are EGA officials.  The purpose of the committee is to review logos proposed by chapters, regions, seminars, and other entities. Logos can be used on paper goods, clothing, advertising materials, stitching items, etc.

                The process is that a group requesting approval to create or to use an already approved logo submits it to AliceRae Kutish at kutish3216@aol.com.  It is then passed on to the committee for comments.  Usually within  5 days a decision is made and sent back to the group which requested it.   If there are questions about the logo or suggestions about ways to change it they are sent back to the requesting group.  Then the group has a chance to redesign it or explain why it should remain as originally submitted.
