Welcome to our chapter

Our chapter meets the EGA mission in a variety of ways: meetings and workshops, show & share stitch-ins, study groups, stitching retreats, community service projects, and our biennial exhibits. The emphasis of our chapter is on education; no skill level is required and we are all ready to share our knowledge with other members.

We define the needle arts as any technique that uses a needle and a thread. Our interests and skills range from the traditional – crewel, cross stitch and needlepoint – to the more unusual – beading, temari and stumpwork. 

Whether you are a beginner or an experienced stitcher, you can learn more about the needle arts with our meetings and workshops, as well as enjoy the friendship of others interested in the needle arts. Please feel free to come to any meeting as a guest and find out why we are such enthusiastic stitchers!

Currently, the NY Capital District Chapter is meeting both live (in-person), and via Zoom. Please check out our calendar for dates, times, and locations.
Please be patient as we  continue to navigate through the new normal we have found ourselves in. We are doing all we can to find new and creative ways to best serve our mission and our membership.
