Embroiderers' Guild of America, Inc.
WELCOME to our website,

You have found the webpage for Biscayne Chapter of the Embroiderers’ Guild of America.  We are a non-profit group that enjoys the needle arts — needle and thread arts that is.  Our aim is to preserve and advance the art of embroidery.  We meet on a monthly basis at Riviera Presbyterian Church and enjoy a program and company of others who pursue the needle arts.  Our group not only serves embroiderers, it has programs that reach out and serve the community.  If this sounds like something you would like to check out, come and visit us.  The dates, time, and address of our meetings can be found under the Programs tab at the top of the page.  We have a lot of fun, and would like to meet you.
