Greater Cincinnati Chapter EGA welcomes
you to the wonderful world of embroidery!
We invite stitchers of ALL levels
-- beginner to professional -- to join us
in learning, sharing, and
enjoying stitching of all kinds.
We have regular meetings most months, September through December and February through May, plus special events in January (4rd Saturday workshop and luncheon), and July (day-long Saturday class). Guests are always welcome.
Regular meetings are held at 1:00 pm the SECOND Monday of the month, at the Madeira Municipal Building, 7141 Miami Avenue (community room on lower level).
Most meetings consist of a business meeting followed by a program. A listing of upcoming programs can be found below, and a sampling of past projects can be found in a photo album.
In a typical year, programs might include hands-on stitching projects, lectures, sharing programs where members exchange hints, suggestions, and experiences on a particular topic, and stitch-ins where we all bring a current project and enjoy the fellowship of stitching together and sharing our current work.
In addition, here are some guidelines to prepare for coming to a meeting:
January 26 - Saturday Workshop and Luncheon - 9:00 to 3:00
"Let's Make Our Own Antique" - learn how to antique a wooden spool and mount needlework to create a "new" antique. Cost is $10, registration deadline Jan 12.
There is NO MEETING on January 14.
