“Through the Needle’s Eye”, the 21st National Exhibit of the Embroiderers’ Guild of America. (EGA)

September 1, 2017 @ 9:30 am - October 1, 2017 @ 4:30 pm


Coming on August 16, 2017, the Transylvania Community Arts Council will host the
opening of “Through the Needle’s Eye”, the 21st National Exhibit of the Embroiderers’
Guild of America. (EGA) This premier event is being held in conjunction with the
Blue Ridge Rendezvous, EGA’s national seminar to be held in Asheville at the Crown
Plaza. Some of the exhibitors will be teaching at the national seminar or will be involved in
the seminar’s organization.

The juried exhibit consists of 46 pieces of needle art displaying a wide variety of needlework
techniques, plus items on loan from EGA’s national headquarters. A portion of the work on
each piece must be done using a needle with an eye, either by hand or machine. After
September 15, 2017 the exhibit will be traveling across the United States for two years.

The mission of the Embroiderers’ Guild is to inspire passion for the needle arts through
education and the celebration of our heritage.
