    Has anyone signed up for Shimmering Dreams and not received their materials.? I have called the headquarters twice and emailed Mona, the teacher, and still have not received anything. Checked my spam and trash folders too.

    • I have had a similar experience. I’ve emailed and called headquarters. They have also emailed her. I still haven’t received anything and my order was placed back in January.

    • Patty and JaNaye, I know I have talked with you both, and we are still working on the HQ end to get this problem solved. I also want you to get your LR materials as soon as possible!

  • Are there any chapters planning on doing the Stash Monster GCC? I would love to join a group and participate.

    • I think I might be interested also, Trudy.

    • Maybe the RDs need to form a GCC!!!

    • Me, too! In this day of Zoom why not a Zoom GCC? In fact, our chapter’s last GCC did not meet in person after about 5 months, and that was before COVID. It is also true I am the only one to finish and send for evaluation so far….
      How could we gauge interest and get more interested people?

    • Ladies, I am a member of the Washington DC Chapter and live in Northern Virginia. Where are you all located? The one issue I can picture (from my 1 GCC) is that the systems relies on having a Class Coordinator to receive Course Materials, send in finished projects, and generally organize Stuff.
      I can picture this happening in a Virtual Group.…[Read more]

    • Hi Kay, I am in CO, Vera is from WV and Wendy is from WI. I’ve done GCC’s with the Rocky Mountain Webstitchers chapter, which has members in different states. For 1 class I mailed my final piece myself rather than sending to the chapter, for the other one there were 4 of us in the metro area, so we sent the pieces together to the chapter to be…[Read more]

    • Hey. you all might want to suggest that EGA have this course as a Lightning Round–that would help you all out! I have to do Stash Busting, too, but it’s going to take me a LLLLLOOOOONG time–I have 40 years worth of accumulation…sigh.

    Getting ready to start the Surface Embroidery Master Craftsman program! Anyone got any hints?

    • Congratulations, Jill, on taking this step. The EGA library has many books on surface embroidery that you can check out for only the cost of postage. Go to egausa.org, log in, then go to Library. You can search by topic. You can keep the books for six weeks.

    • Good luck, Jill! I don’t have any hints, but I’m glad you are going for it!

    • I have just submitted Step 1 Surface Embroidery Master Craftsman Program.
      Live in Sydney. Australia.

    • Keep in touch and let me know how it goes. I’m still waiting for some supplies so sampling in the meantime. I am in Vancouver, Canada.

  • I’m finally ready to begin Gay Ann Roger’s “Chloe’s Wedding Dress”. I purchased the design several years ago at an EGA seminar. The instructions begin on page 3, and do not include the fabric used or thread count. I’ve sent sent emails to three different addresses and called her phone with no response. Has anyone used this pattern and know the…[Read more]

  • How can I get in contact with the teacher for the goldwork bracelet. I need to know where to repurchase items from the kit I purchased as I have lost my kit but I am not getting any response and I have posted a request several times.

    • Hi Nancy, your teacher only has access to the group discussion in her Goldwork Bracelet class, not this discussion group. I will contact her for you.

  • have any of you ever heard of mardauger embroidery? had a question from a member in RMR – they have a piece done by her great grandmother and would like to find out more about it. Thanks in advance.

  • Looking for contact information for Judy Berreson Caruso, a Brazilian Embroidery teacher. She may contact me directly through the blog if anyone knows how to reach her.

  • The Great Lakes Region would like to invite you to Meet the Teachers on Saturday January 9th at 9:00 am Central time. The Seminar will be a virtual event and additional information is available on the EGA-GLR website. This event is open to all that wish to attend, whether you are currently registered and would like to add other classes or if you…[Read more]

    Being new at this system. I think I missed the last class Geraniums class..) If I did will i be able to retrieve it in a video or something?

  • I’m not sure this is the right venue for this, but I find the EGA website incredibly frustrating. Much of the time I cannot find any way to log out. When I click on the words at the top of the page (such as members only), most of the time nothing happens. When I open with just http://www.egausa.org, there seems to be no way to log in. If I just close…[Read more]

    • Jocelyn, I’m not sure if staff is checking discussion board today, but I’m the region director in the Great Lakes Region. Are you on a computer, laptop or tablet? The login in link appears out the upper right hand corner of my screen on both my smart phone and computer.

    • And this is all good feedback. I’d also be happy to walk you through the website on zoom if you’d like. My contact info is in my profile.

    • Wendy, Thanks for your note. Sorry, but I don’t zoom. As you may have guessed, I do not like technology. Right now I use a laptop. Great Lakes region. Hmm. Where are you from? My family is from the Grand Rapids, MI, area, though I live in California and grew up in Ohio.

    • Hi @Jocelyn-Vitanye , I’m sorry you were having issues with the website. The Login button always appears on the top right corner of the website, it changes to Profile once you log in. The log out button is on the navigation under Members Only, I’m including a screenshot below. There is a chance that your internet browser is maximized/zoomed in…[Read more]

    • Thanks @wendy-lynn!

    • Jocelyn, I’m sorry I didn’t see your reply. I live in Wisconsin and I’m currently on Washington Island. Happy New Year!

  • In order to accommodate all we can in these trying times we are extending early registration for Share-A-Stitch 2021, the TVR Region Seminar, until the end of October.

  • In 2005 Dorothy Lesher taught a class in Tulsa EGA called the Sorceress. It is a pair to the Wizard. I have the canvas and it is almost half completed but when we had a house fire, the instructions and fibers were destroyed. I have contacted Dorothy numerous time but at 93 she is very forgetful and hasn’t been much help. I am trying to find…[Read more]

  • Has the Dorset Button class ended? I requested approval a week ago and I keep getting the following message: “This is a private group. Your membership request is awaiting approval from the group administrator.” Can anyone help?

    Hi members, we are experiencing an issue that is stopping some visitors from accessing the website. We have notified our web support team and they’re working on a fix. We’re sorry for the inconvenience.

    I just finished a Petite Project, Dogwood Assisi. I decided to hem it instead of framing it.

  • I am looking for a sampler that was offered in the March 2006 Needlearts magazine called Elizabeth Muir Sampler. I am willing to pay for it.

  • I have been searching for an OOP pattern for the Scottish sampler, Agnes Brock 1795, to no avail. If anyone has this pattern and is finished with it, I would LOVE to buy it from you. I have searched everywhere and have had no luck.

    • Vera–have you tried Carol Sessoms at the Linen Sampler in Belmont, North Carolina at 704-825-1807? I see this sampler listed under the “Em-Li” list of samplers available. (I just did some Google diving, so I”m not sure if the shop is still open). Good Luck.

    • Thank you for your help. I tried “Em-Li” about a year ago but, even though it was shown on their page, they said it was no longer available. Perseverance paid off though, when I ran across it on the stitchin’ stuff for sale page on Facebook. I have it now and am excited to begin it. Thank you again for looking for it. Stitchers are the best!

  • Hi all,

    Our chapter is hosting Diane Herrmann\’s Walking the Water\’s Edge in Chicago in May, and we are allowing ghost stitchers. If you are interested in ghosting this class or attending in person, go to http://www.windycityega.org/upcoming-events/

    • Hi Heather, thank you for that invite. Wondering what is included in the fee—any materials?

    • Hi Kay,

      The in-class fee of $85 includes the teacher’s fee and kit. If you decide to ghost the class, the $100 fee includes the teacher’s fee, kit and a shipping/handling fee for the kit. Please let me know if you have any other questions!

    • I’m kind of a new EGA member….can you explain how the ghosting works? Is it just a do-it-on-your-own project?

    • Kay- I’m not sure you ever got an answer to your question. In my experience, ghosting involves signing up for a class that you cannot attend in person. The teacher or the person organizing the class will mail the kit to you. So, yes, you work on the project on your own. And we’re so glad that you joined EGA. Welcome to our world!

  • HI. Has payment information for the national seminar been sent out yet? Thanks.

    • Hi, Helene. I got a letter saying I had gotten the class I requested during preregistration, and that we will get information by 1 February on how to complete registration. That must be done by 1 March, so we’ll have a month to pay the rest of registration and the class fee(s).
