• Where do I go to get our logo to put in our newsletters?

    • Hi Lynn, these live in the Document Downloads page but we are currently making some fixes to that page. I put in your request by email and copied you. You should be getting them soon.

  • Does anyone know of websites for selling older embroidery patterns? I’m looking for Those Darn Birds by An Elne of Lynnyn. It evidently used to be available through The Sampler Guild UK, but both it and An Elne of Lynnyn are now defunct. I’ve tried eBay and Etsy, so far without luck.

  • Kissing Pillows- who is collecting the Kissing Pillows now?

    • Violet, are you stitching them in conjuction with a chapter? I’m wondering if you are doing it independently or as a group outreach project. I can try to help you if you see this message and respond.

      • I’m asking because I was told that they are no longer being collected by anyone. Are you passing them out to military being deployed or know of a group doing that?

        • I am not personally involved with the Kissing Pillows now but I have enjoyed stitching many of them in the past. I’m going to direct you to two sources for more information: The National Outreach chairman is Beate Lies. You can reach Beate via email at beainsc@gmail.com. She can point you in the right direction. Secondly, the Yellow Rose…[Read more]

    • My chapter wanted to donate the pillows last fall and were finally directed to Geraldine Trappey (gtrappey@comcast.net), the originator of the program. At that time, she was not sure she could continue for a number of reasons, but I am not sure what the current status is. You might try contacting her to find out if they are still collecting the…[Read more]

  • So the new EGA logo I stitched grew up to be a tin topper. It fits perfectly.

    I stitched the new EGA logo last night. Haven’t decided yet what it will be when it grows up – nametag, Altoids tin topper, or something else?

  • Our National President has chosen \”America\’s Wounded Service Members\” as her charity to benefit from the sale of the patterns found in the online Shop under \”publications\”. I would like to know the specific charity to which this money will go. I do not find one bearing the name as it is given in the information online or in the magazine.

    • Bonnie: Specifically, my plan is to donate the funds raised by selling these projects to The Wounded Warrior Project. When I approached that organization, they were very receptive but they have many legal constraints to ‘officially affiliating’ with them. This organization received a lot of bad publicity several years ago and these constraints…[Read more]

  • I’ve been looking for a few years for a crewel kit by Elsa Williams called Enchanted April. It was a very short run, maybe only 6 months, it’s a snowy egret (?) against a backdrop of purple flowers. If anyone is destashing that kit, I’d be willing to pay for it! Please let me know!
    I’ve checked ebay and on other sales sites, the prices there are…[Read more]

  • I am looking for information on the Camillia Chapter in Sacrament, CA. GPR website says to contact the chapter, but no information is shown. Help!! Maureen

  • Hi, I’m president of a small EGA chapter. Altho, we are small we are an active group but still do not receive enough revenue through our dues to cover our expenses. In past years we have had an auction. Our members are feeling burnt out and haven’t had many outside bidders . We haven’t generated much revenue for all the effort that was put…[Read more]

    • Try a tea party. There is a group in Washington state who put a tea party on every February and they have had to limit the attendees as so many want to come. My chapter did a tea last June and we opened it to members and their friends. We had an exhibit of our work and served tea in china tea cups and had “tea” food. We did not charge to come…[Read more]

      • Thank you Judith, for your ideas. I will share them with our chapter. The tea party sounds like a good idea and a fun idea. Who doesn’t enjoy a tea party!!

    • I visited the Low Country Chapter Meeting last week and they had a little wrapped gift to raffle to members. Members in attendance donated $1/ticket and the winning number was pulled from the hat after the meeting. They collected over $30 at one meeting. Each month a member volunteers to bring a gift to raffle off. I thought it was a brilliant…[Read more]

      • Thank you, Susan, for you suggestion. Our chapter has been doing a raffle each month for sometime. It definitely helps with the revenue.

    Our miniature house is ready for Christmas!

  • Getting rid of stash? I have a friend who has just started a business of buying patterns and kits of (mostly) cross stitch from estates and stitchers who know they will never get to certain treasures and then reselling, with the absolute goal of getting good quality stitching items into the hands of stitchers who will love and treasure them. Do…[Read more]

  • I have a couple of recommendations.
    First, since I have signed up for the Designing Class, which starts in January, I have received an email every time someone else signs up. That seems unnecessary. Is this something I change myself, or can you fix that for everybody.
    Secondly, when I go to Petite Projects or Free Projects and open one, I…[Read more]

    • Hi Katherine, thanks for your feedback. We are still working on some minor things on the website, and the email side of it as it relates to classes is part of that. For now, there is an option on your class discussion group top tab to change the frequency in which you receive emails from the class.

      On the Petite Projects or Free Projects, once…[Read more]

    Where do I find my EGA#? I need to for the Fiber Forum Retreat registration. Thanks for the help.

    • When you join the membership person from your group should give you an EGA card. However, we do not automatically have the EGA #. It would come from Tonya Parks @ EGA, if your membership person does not have it yet. You could email Tonya if necessary. She’s great to work with and usually responds very quickly.

    • Your EGA number is the line above your name on your NeedleArts address label. 🙂

  • How do I find out if there were any additional candidates put forward for the Executive Committee? Voting time is nearly here!

    • Hi Julia, the information regarding voting for the Executive Committee was sent to Chapter Presidents in the mail. If you were meant to receive it but didn’t, please give us a call at 502-589-6956 and we can assist you! Thanks!

      • Hi Rand –

        I did get the mailer. I was asking if there were any changes as provided in the notification for additional nominations from the chapters. The deadline for submission was August 20. Other than an address for mailing, there was no other contact information for the chair of the nominating committee. Is there an update?

  • I have it! My e-mail is boldt54@charter.net; send me info as to how best to get it to you.

  • re: in search of an old cross stitch chart from a magazine
    Okay, I need some help. I know this is REALLY a long, long shot….but I thought I’d give it a try.
    My nephew’s wife is having a baby in January. It’s a girl. I recalled a chart from a magazine that I really really want to stitch on a baby bib, and finally found it today. Well, I found…[Read more]
