Want to find out more about membership? We are actively seeking new members to join us us in our passion for all thing related to needle arts.
The Embroiderers’ Guild of America (EGA) is an educational non-profit organization whose mission is to inspire passion for the needle arts through education and the celebration of its heritage.
EGA is a three-tiered organization with activities occurring at the local, regional and national levels.
Our monthly meetings are held at Bethany United Methodist Church, 3910 Mineral Point Road, Madison. The meetings are held from 9:00 – 11:00 am on the 2nd Friday morning of the month and from 7:00 – 9:00 pm on the 3rd Thursday evening of the month.
Each October our chapter holds our annual needlework show, Art of the Needle. It showcases our members’ needle art, serves as a chapter program fundraiser, provides educational outreach to the community and enrolls new members.
Throughout the year, meet other members at our program meetings or participate in a special interest group which get together outside the regular meeting times: Hardanger, Canvas, Etc., Get the Darn Thing Done (GTDTD), Temari. Painted Canvas, and Road Trip.
Annual Dues are $55.
