A community stitched together by the love of needle arts.

Welcome to EGA

EGA is a national community of stitchers who love the creativity and beauty of needle and thread – just like you. Since 1958, EGA has been teaching classes and workshops, inspiring stitchers through exhibitions, preserving the history of embroidery, and creating spaces for stitchers to connect and share their love of needlework. We invite you to explore our website to discover the many ways that EGA can enrich the wonderful world of needle arts for you.
