EGA Events

For those with a passion for needlework, attending an EGA event can be one of the most rewarding and inspiring experiences you can have. There are embroidery events for learning, showcasing, and just marveling at the art others produce. If you’ve never been to an EGA event, go. If you have, we know you’ll be back. In the meantime, have a look at what’s coming your way.
