Welcome to the Metropolitan Region. We are one of 13 regions of the Embroiderers' Guild of America.
As our name suggests, our 16 chapters are located in the New York Metropolitan area (New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania). If you would like more information on any of our chapters, please see "Who We Are" on this webpage.
Our next Region Seminar, Threads of Color, will be held April 17-19, 2015 at the Wyndham Hamilton Park Hotel and Conference Center in Florham Park, New Jersey. This will be our sixth seminar there.
If you would like to keep abreast of EGA activities you can do so via their website (www.egausa.org),Facebook (simply search for EGAUSA and “Like” the page), and/or Twitter. It is only via the website, however, that you can access items exclusively for members. This is the “Members Resources” section and requires a password. If you don't have one send an email to email@example.com, and someone at headquarters will help you set up an account.
Items of interest in this section include a Needlework Glossary. The glossary is the work of many members of EGA who gave of their time and knowledge to create a serious work comprised of usable definitions of terms used in the field of needlework. You can down load it or request a hard copy by emailing headquarters. Additionally EGA has a project to place all Petite Projects on the website. Currently more than half of the 63 Petite Projects are already there in the Members Only section. These projects make excellent chapter programs.
The Region has an email account, Metregion@aol.com. If you would like to receive updates from the RD and/or the METROPOLL electronically, please send a request to this address.
Once again, chapters have the opportunity to register for a GCC and have the Region pay for it. Applications are due December 1, 2015 and can be found on this website.
Just a reminder, all officer changes should be reported to me and as Region Director, I will be responsible for reporting them to headquarters. Minutes of chapter meetings should also be sent to me. If you have any questions or comments, please contact me.
Stitching every day is good for you!
Metropolitan Region Director
