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.

Seminar 2020 will be in Boston, we are very excited about it, planning has already started. Please check out the Seminar 2020 page for all the latest information. Consider creating a Tea Cozy to exhibit, details here.

Message from NER Director

Dear Members,

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. I know it’s a busy time for everyone, so I’ll make this brief. Please join me in congratulating Dawn Senftleber, member of Green Mountain
Chapter. She is this year’s winner of the Gold Thread Award for New England Region.
Congratulations on such a well-deserved honor!

There are some great classes and learning opportunities being offered across the region over the next few months. Make sure you check them out in this website.

Happy stitching!

Kari Boardman
