About Us

Welcome to our website and thanks for stopping by! We’re happy you’d like to get to know us a little better. Here’s a bit of info about the Fort Worth Chapter of EGA:

Our chapter is based in Fort Worth, Texas and received its charter from EGA National on January 1, 1977.

We meet on the first Saturday of each month at 9:30 am. Meetings are held at Pickard Hall in Arlington, Texas. Please reach out to us for the direct address – we’d love to welcome you!

At a typical meeting, there is a quick business portion at the beginning when chapter officers and committee chairs give updates to the membership about current initiatives, followed by Show & Tell, where members show off their latest finished pieces. Lastly, we have a program…which usually involves learning a new skill or hearing a lecture.

Guests are welcome at our meetings, so if you’re interested in us we’d love to meet you! You’re welcome to attend up to two meetings before you’re asked to become a member.


Our chapter also hosts other opportunities to stitch together, some in-person and some on Zoom. We’re also active in teaching local Girl Scouts how to stitch, which we’re quite proud of. We host several Stitch In Public days every year. Members of our chapter enjoy a fun retreat in the fall, and a holiday party at the end of the year that is inclusive of all faiths and cultures.
