Blue Ridge Chapter: Embroiderers Guild of America

1st Wednesday   10:00 am - 12:00 pm

The Blue Ridge Chapter of the Embroiderers Guild of America (BREGA) now meets on the first Wednesday of each month from 10 a.m. to noon at the Bower Center for the Arts, unless otherwise advertised.

According to its website, “EGA is a national, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the study and preservation of the art of embroidery”. Membership is open to anyone interested in needlework, from the beginner to the professional. Members work within local chapters or a member-at-large network to improve their skills and knowledge. Numerous opportunities are available to learn embroidery and needlework techniques, including chapter meetings, workshops, correspondence courses, certification programs, and national and regional seminars. In addition, we offer free projects, a youth program, a quarterly magazine, and national traveling exhibits.

Guests are welcome at the meetings, and all levels of ability are encouraged to join the guild. Please notify us via email if you plan to attend a meeting.
