The Philadelphia Area Chapter of The Embroiderers' Guild of America, Inc. (EGA)
The Philadelphia EGA Chapter is the oldest in the country. It was originally established in 1957 as the American Branch of the Embroiderers' Guild of London. A year later the EGA was formally established, and the Philadelphia area stitchers formed its first chapter in 1964.
The mission of The Embroiderers' Guild of America is to inspire passion for the needle arts through education and the celebration of its heritage.
