Cheryl Christian, EGA’s Needle Arts editor, has announced her retirement from the position. Over the past 14 years, Cheryl has improved both the content and appearance of the publication, and her knowledgeable and detail-oriented approach will be missed. She will close out her tenure with the December 2021 issue, and is looking forward to continuing her research into the history and cultural significance of embroidery and embroiderers, as well as returning on a more full-time basis to her own studio work in traditional embroidery, mixed-media embroidery, art quilting, pastel, watercolor, and botanical illustration. She also plans to continue to teach in these areas. Please join me in thanking Cheryl for her dedication and exemplary work, which has benefited all of us in EGA.
With Cheryl’s departure, we are searching for a new editor for Needle Arts. Are you an experienced editor looking for a new opportunity, or do you know someone who might be interested in shepherding the publication into the future? This independent contractor position includes responsibility for soliciting articles and projects, editing and proofreading, advertising sales, and production and printing coordination.
