Stitching Together since 1979

The chapter fosters needlework accomplished through the eye of a needle and welcomes stitchers of all levels of expertise.

TANA meets the first Monday of each month at 6:30pm. Our meeting room is at the Community Building at Sacred Heart Catholic Church located at 2015 Adams Ave, Huntington WV 25704-1419.

The Embroiderers’ Guild of America (EGA) was formed for the express purpose of fostering the art of needlework and associated arts. Membership in EGA is open to anyone interested in embroidery from the beginner to the professional. Members work within local chapters or a member-at-large network to improve their skills and knowledge. Also, the organization and individual members are involved with museums for education and preservation purposes. EGA offers individual and group correspondence courses, teacher and judge certification programs as well as nine separate disciplines in master craftsman programs.
