    Omaha_EGA_Logo_pp4a.jpg  Welcome to our website.   

    The Embroiderers' Guild of America, Inc. was founded in 1958.

    Mid-America Needlecrafters’ Guild, Chapter 141 of Embroiderers’ Guild of America
    was formed in Omaha, Nebraska, in 1978.

    The name was changed to Omaha Needle Artists Guild in 1991.

    In 2013 we celebrated our 35th Anniversary!
    We had a tea on 27 April 2013 at Faith Christian Church in Omaha, Nebraska.
    There was a program by Sue McLain entitled "Yesterday's Woman" brought to us by Nebraska Humanities Council.
    We wore our fanciest hats and sipped tea from our favorite tea cups.
    It was a lovely afternoon remembering the history and people who made this guild possible.

    13th and 14th of October 2013, as part of EGA's International Teacher Tour, Barbara Kershaw taught "Annabella", a fingertip towel done
    in Italian drawn-thread embroidery worked on 28 count white Cashel linen with Perle Coton.
    It is a lovely piece.

    14 June 2014, Flag Day, we had a great time stitching with Sharon Maxwell.
    She came from Prairie Village, Kansas, to teach her Patriotic Strawberry class.

    3rd - 5th October 2014, we jointly hosted Stitching Along the Mighty Mo, Heartland Region Meeting with the Siouxland Chapter at Sioux City, Iowa.

    8th and 9th of August 2015 Nebraska Canvasbacks (local ANG chapter) hosted Toni Gerdes for her two day class Geometric Butterfly.
    Several EGA members attended.

    21st and 22nd October 2016 as part of EGA's International Teacher Tour, Jette Roy Finlay-Heath taught " A Delightful Dessert" a class of Hedebo Danish White Work Embroidery.
    Jette has dedicated her life to the teaching and designing of Embroidery of ‘The Hedebo Period’ and is an acknowledged international authority in this particular subject.
    Another lovely piece.

    President’s Message

    Dear Omaha Needle Artists,

    We would like to welcome all to our group. Each of us is unique, creating the spice of our group. Some of us like to be adventuresome and try new stitches and dabble in new types of needlework.

    Others of us enjoy the tried and true needlework with which we are most familiar. Some of us are beginning needleworkers and others of us are more experienced.

    But the common thread that bonds us all together is loving to stitch, and promoting and preserving the needlework traditions. Plus, we always have a little fun along the way!

    For those of you visiting this site for the first time, please check us out. Call us or come to one of our meetings listed on this website.

    If there are types of needlework that you are especially interested in learning or enhancing your technique, please let us know so that we might incorporate them into our calendar of programs.

    If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions, I can be reached as noted below.

    Keep Stitching!

    Jeanne, President
