The Embroiderers’ Guild of America acknowledges the value of needlework in art and history. The National Exhibit is a representative selection of the best in artistic and technical works. It is through the needle’s eye that EGA embraces both traditional and contemporary needlework while expanding the perception of embroidery as an art form.

The 21st Through the Needle's Eye was launched at the Transylvania Community Arts Council in Brevard, NC, August 16-September 15, 2017. It is hosted by the Carolinas Region; Rosemary Kostansek, Chair.

Beginning in late 2017, the exhibition is available to travel to museums and galleries across the country. Several contracts are being negotiated currently and dates and more locations will be posted here as they are finalized. If you are interested in bringing Through the Needle's Eye to your area, please contact Brad Cape at EGA Headquarters.
