Chapter News: Fort Worth Chapter creates Girl Scouts Teaching Program on Cross Stitch

Today we are bringing you news from our Fort Worth Chapter in Texas. We encourage you to learn more about them by clicking on their name and now you can join them directly from this website!

At EGA, we’re all about needlework education and passing on the wonderful techniques and tricks of the fiber arts. The Fort Worth Chapter has created a Girl Scouts teaching program where our members teach today’s youth how to cross stitch.

Written by Debra Bessent, the program teaches the basics of cross stitch and contains two designs for scouts to finish – which is a requirement for their Fiber Arts badge. When the scouts have completed both projects, they’ve earned their badge.

Fort Worth limits class size to 20 students at a time…and yes, that includes troop leaders and parents! When it comes to stitching, we’re happy to teach anyone who wants to learn. Classes are 2 hours in length. Any scouts or parents who are interested are always invited to join the Fort Worth chapter and begin their own needle art adventure.

Our teachers also bring examples of the needlework they do and share lots of other information about the amazing world of fiber and needle arts.

We’re excited to share the teaching manual with our fellow EGA chapters. It’s hosted on our chapter website here. We know you’ll find it a rewarding and fun experience!

— Dianne Stauber, Fort Worth Chapter President
