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.

January 23 - Tips and Tricks (for making your stitching life easier, stitching neater, and having more fun while stitching!) by Ronda Ogden

Ronda has done this program for the Chapter in the past and it has been brought back by popular demand!  We all learn something new each time we meet but this puts lots of those little "this may help" tidbits into one package.  If you have a tip, trick, or special method of doing something please be prepared to share it during this evening.  


February 20 - Bookmark Sampler, Part 1 taught by Bulinda Ebanks

This bookmark was designed by chapter members in 1987 and redone in 2000. It was kitted up and sold as fundraiser many years ago.  While we were going through the BVS Stash it was discovered that we had enough materials/kits to do a class!!  Since only a few of our current members have done this little project and it is so very, very nice, it seemed perfect. So many stitches to learn!!  



No experience necessar
y.  Feel free to bring a project to work on.

Guests are always welcome.
