We meet monthly, on the third Tuesday, from 7:00-9:00 p.m. at Holy Cross Lutheran Church, 1200 Foxfire, College Station, TX.  Please view the “Calendar” page for our yearly schedule.

At each meeting, there is a small, optional project to learn new stitches and techniques.  Any technique that can be done with a threaded needle is included in the scope of the Embroiderers’ Guild.  We plan our projects so members can learn the techniques of special interest to them.  Throughout the year, we sometimes work on larger group projects that provide the opportunity to practice a technique in depth.

Membership annual dues are $54 per year which includes membership in the local, regional, and national levels of the Embroiderers’ Guild of America, Inc. and a subscription to the magazine, Needle Arts.  Guests are welcome and encouraged to visit regular meetings.

July 19 How to Construct a Biscornu - Taught by LeeAnna Kroll

This is an opportunity to learn how to "finish" that beautiful stitching into a sweet little pillow of a pin cushion in an interesting shape!  A biscornu is an 8 sided stuffed ornamental pincushion which usually has a button in the center that causes the center to be depressed. The picture here is one that Terri Berka has done.
