We meet monthly, on the third Tuesday, from 7:00-9:00 p.m. at Holy Cross Lutheran Church, 1200 Foxfire, College Station, TX.  Please view the “Calendar” page for our yearly schedule.

At each meeting, there is a small, optional project to learn new stitches and techniques.  Any technique that can be done with a threaded needle is included in the scope of the Embroiderers’ Guild.  We plan our projects so members can learn the techniques of special interest to them.  Throughout the year, we sometimes work on larger group projects that provide the opportunity to practice a technique in depth.

Membership annual dues are $54 per year which includes membership in the local, regional, and national levels of the Embroiderers’ Guild of America, Inc. and a subscription to the magazine, Needle Arts.  Guests are welcome and encouraged to visit regular meetings.

National has changed the membership cycle to be from June 1 - May 31 for all members.  New members dues are prorated based on the quarter they join:  1st quarter (1/4 year) - dues are $13.50; 2nd quarter (1 year) - dues are $54.00; 3rd quarter (3/4 year) - dues are $40.50; 4th quarter (1/2 year) - dues are $27.
