The map below indicates the geographic “center” of the 14 Sun Region chapters.  Every chapter has its own personality.  Most EGA members choose to belong to the “face-to-face” chapter nearest their home, but some choose to belong to a more distant chapter or to several chapters.  It’s not necessary for an EGA member to belong to a “face-to-face” chapter.  EGA has a Members-at-Large category and we have a vibrant Internet chapter called Cyberstitchers
