Calling all teachers: Submit your proposals for EGA’s Mid-Atlantic Region Seminar 2022

Mid-Atlantic Region Seminar 2022 is extending the deadline to submit teaching proposals until July 1, 2020.

Our Mid-Atlantic Region Seminar 2022, Waves of Stitches, sponsored by the Tidewater Virginia Chapter, will be held June 15-19, 2022, at the Norfolk Waterside Marriott, 235 East Main Street, Norfolk, VA.

We encourage you to submit your most enticing pieces (see NOTE below) for this time of stitching fun. We are looking for pieces that will grab the interests of our region members, something a bit out of the ordinary that pushes the envelope.

*NOTE: The Instructor MUST be able to represent and warrant to EGA, with respect to all materials submitted and materials to be distributed to students for the class identified above, either that:

1. The material is the Instructor’s original creation (EGA definition: “Original”- An original work is one that, from the beginning, is solely the creative product of the stitcher. [Adopted by National Board 10/2003]) and does not infringe upon copyright of any other person,


2. Some or all the material is the Instructor’s adaptation (EGA definition: “Adaptation” – An adaptation is needlework inspired by or based upon a source other than needlework and modified through significant design changes. Source(s) are to be documented. [Adopted by National Board 10/2003]) . For any material not the Instructor’s original creation, the Instructor has disclosed to EGA and MAR, through written credits, the source and author of any pre-existing work contained in materials AND the Instructor has procured and grants to EGA and MAR, license to use and distribute the pre-existing work within materials submitted, except for pre-existing materials in the public domain.
