Cataloging a wealth of imagination

The Permanent Collection

To further its mission of education about and preservation of the heritage of embroidery, EGA established a permanent collection of textiles and related articles in the early days of the organization. The goal of the collection is to represent as many techniques, cultures, and historical eras as possible. Pieces from the collection are used for exhibition, reproduction, and study. If you have any questions about the permanent collection or have an embroidered item you would like to donate, please contact Cynthia Welch at EGA Headquarters.
