Library & Study Boxes

Our Library and our Study Boxes programs are an important part of our embroidery resources for our members.

The Dorothy Babcock Memorial Library consists of a lending library of more than 2000 needlework books and a non-circulating reference section of rare and historic materials. Members are welcome to borrow up to four books at a time for a period of 30 days using the list below. Books are shipped via USPS Media Mail and borrowers are responsible for shipping and handling.

EGA Study Boxes

Through the Study Box program, EGA provides its members with a special way of learning. The boxes can be used as an introduction to a needlework technique, as an alternative to classroom study, or for advanced study.
