Come relax and show off your new projects or stash. We love them both. Stuck on a project–maybe one of us can help. Want to talk about the latest design, newest gadget, or the best needles? We are here for you and we won’t roll our eyes or try to change the subject.
Our get-togethers give us some time for relaxing, stitching, and oogling other’s stitchers work. Please feel free to stop by our monthly meetings (3rd Monday) in the Clairemont area of San Diego. Monday nights not good for you, then check out our calendar for other upcoming events. We welcome guests to join us in some stitching and meet us. Nervous about just showing up? Contact any one of our board members to learn more.
What is Muchas Manos? In addition to being people who love stitching, we are a chapter of The Embroiderers’ Guild of America, Inc., (EGA). The EGA encourages you to stitch in any technique you enjoy. You can stick with the one technique you love or branch out and try something new. What you stitch is entirely up to you. Some of the techniques the members of the EGA enjoy include:
Appliqué, Blackwork, Brazilian Embroidery, Canvas Embroidery, Color & Design, Conservation of Textiles, Contemporary Embroidery, Counted Thread Embroidery (including Cross Stitch), Crewel Embroidery, Cutwork Embroidery, Drawn Thread Embroidery, Ecclesiastical Embroidery, Fabric Embellishment, Fine Handsewing, Hardanger, Hedebo, Lacework, Machine Embroidery, Metal Thread Embroidery, Mixed Media Embroidery, Needlepainting, Needlepoint, Painting and Dyeing Fabrics, Patchwork, Pulled Work, Quilting, Redwork, Schwalm Embroidery, Shadow Work Embroidery, Silk Embroidery, Smocking, Stumpwork, Surface Embroidery, Tenerife Embroidery, and Whitework.
The EGA is comprised of 13 regions. We are part of the Pacific Southwestern Region (PSR). Our region is home to members in chapters located throughout Arizona, Southern Nevada, and Southern California. The EGA offers a wide variety of opportunities to take classes in your favorite (or a new) technique. These opportunities range from online classes to one-day workshops to week-long seminars. Some are hosted by individual chapters, others by the region, and some are national. You can choose whichever fits your interests, lifestyle, and budget.
Thank you for visiting.
