Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont


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.

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

Dear Members,

Happy Spring…although it really doesn’t feel like it temperature wise. Hopefully warmer weather is right around the corner. With the new year, EGA National has seen some big changes. The new logo was rolled out and is currently in use. The new and improved website is also up and running. I hope you all have had a chance to check it out.

If you didn’t already know, New England Region is hosting the 2020 National Seminar. We now have a theme. The “Boston Stitch Party” will be held on September 4-8, 2020 at the Boston Sheraton Hotel in Back Bay.
There will also be mini classes on the night of September 3.                       
Please join us in making the 2020 Seminar the best it can be.

Happy stitching!

Kari Boardman NER RD
