General Chapter Information:

Welcome to the Needle Arts Guild of Toledo! Our guild is a Chapter of The Embroiderers' Guild of America, Inc., a non-profit educational organization founded in 1959 to

  • Foster high standards of design, color, and workmanship in embroidery;
  • Teach the embroidery arts; and
  • Preserve our national needle arts heritage.

The EGA serves thousands of members through a network of over 300 chapters which are grouped into thirteen geographical regions. Our chapter serves Northwest Ohio and the surrounding area.

Meeting Times and Locations:

Normally, our monthly meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month starting at 6:30pm at the Epilepsy Center of Northwest Ohio, 1701 Holland Rd., Maumee, OH 43537. Visitors are Welcome! A map to the Epilepsy Center is available through the link provided. Note that the entrance to the parking lot is on Hickory Pointe Rd.

Our January, February, and March 2022 meetings will be conducted remotely via Zoom, in order to avoid having people drive in inclimate weather. Please contact us at for a meeting invitation.
