January, February & March chapter project
Dogwood Chapter members are all invited to participate in making the Curious Needlebook featured in the October/November and December/January issues of NeedleArts Magazine. This needlecase is so much prettier in person than in photos! It's stitched on green canvas and the overdyed purple threads are Caron Watercolours. There is also some sparkle from a specialty thread and some added beads. It's also a generous size to hold all your needels and pins.

What you'll learn from this project is how to make Jessica stitches and modified Jessica stitches in addtion to sheath stitch. Finishing the needlebook will also be addressed. Members may either order a kit in the colorway presented in the magazine (green canvas and Watercolour threads) or use materials from their own stash. The kit will cost $20 and will be collected at the first meeting on January 6th at the Southeast Fiber Arts Alliance (SEFAA).  Please email Deb Berger at [email protected] to reserve your kit now.  Members are responsible for supplying their own stretcher bars and normal stitching supplies. 

A Little Book of Embroidery Basics - FREE to all EGA members!

​Have you gotten your FREE downloadable booklet yet? This book is a little collection of tips and bits of knowledge collected by the author, designed to help a beginning embroiderer with some basic knowledge about the wonderful world of embroidery in any of its forms, and to encourage an established embroiderer to pursue beautiful stitches. Included are 'The Expert Advises' - invaluable tips offered from some of our teachers.

Remember, this is free, but only to EGA members.

The book can be accessed by logging into EGA's national website at and then clicking on 'resources' and then 'free projects'. 

The book can be printed on 8 1/2" x 11" paper and then cut to 5.5" x 8.5" and bound in your preferred method.
