Dogwood Chapter's Giant Stitch In is set for Saturday, July 29th from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. at Perimeter Church at 9500 Medlock Bridge Rd., Johns Creek, GA. Gather your pre-priced magazines, books, kits, fabrics, threads and anything else stitch related that you'd like to donate for the benefit of the chapter. Items will be sold garage sale style and all proceeds benefit Dogwood Chapter.  

Then, stick around and stitch with us! Bring your WIP (work in progress) and enjoy the company of other passionate stitchers for a fun-filled day! Lunch will be provided to all who come, so who said "there's not such thing as a free lunch"? 

Think about supplying a stitched item or two for the teacup auction. Appropriate items would be biscornus, scissor cases, needle books or any small items like scissors, beaded items or items that another stitcher would love. There will also be door prizes. Our talented stitchers have donated beautiful things in the past, so you won't want to miss this. Don't forget to wear your Dogwood name tags and we'll see you there.

 All other needlework guild members and guests are invited to attend.

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.

Funding for 'A Little Book of Embroidery Basics' was made possible by the Gay Montegue Phillips Bequest.
