The purpose of the Santa Clara Valley Chapter (SCVC) of The Embroiderer's Guild of America, Inc. (EGA) is to educate and promote technique, color, and design in needlework, and to encourage interest in this creative work.

Why I joined?  


I initially joined so I could have someone to talk to about stitching when my stitching friend moved away. Then I discovered a world of techniques besides cross stitch, some of which I really took a liking to, like stumpwork. The educational opportunities are great.  Jo V.

Sharing information and appreciation of our craft/art with others. Michael J.

I wanted to find stitching friends who were as serious about stitching as I am, to improve my skills, find knowledgeable instruction, and find retail resources.  Margaret McL.

Show and Tell time which gives me a deadline and an opportunity to get feedback, including positive reinforcement and tips/ideas on how to work through a problem. I’ve learned a lot from others.  Claudia D.
