What's New

  Phillips Grant Class in Marlborough, MA
    "Illuminated Elegance" with Tony Minieri

NER is excited about the upcoming canvas embroidery (needlepoint) workshop with Tony Minieri.  The class will be held on Saturday and Sunday, October 14 and 15, 2017 at the Marriott Courtyard Hotel in Marlborough, MA.  The hotel is conveniently located at the intersection of Route 20 and I-495, two exits north of the Mass Pike (I-90).

There is still room in this class if you wish to attend.  Please click here for more information.  The registration deadline has been extended to August 1, 2017.

CRVC Library

Our CRVC Library has seen very little use in the last 5-10 years and therefore the Board has made the difficult decision to dissolve it.  Chapter members are being offered the first opportunity to purchase the books in the library with the funds going into the education fund.

The list of books in the library is on the CRVC web site, listed both alphabetically
by title -- -- and alphabetically
by author --  If you are interested in one or more titles, please contact the chapter librarian Judie Solomon at with the title(s) and the price you are willing to pay for each title.  Once you are notified that the books are yours, please arrange to pick them up at Thistle Needleworks.  If you prefer to have your book(s) mailed to you, please let the librarian know and you will be informed how much the postage will be (via Media Mail).

If all the books are not distributed to members, they will be offered to other chapters and other EGA members.

CRVC Board Meetings

During 2017, Board Meetings will be held on the second Tuesday of odd-numbered months. See the Master Calendar for actual meeting dates and location.

CRVC Bylaws

The CRVC Chapter Bylaws (Revised 2013) are available for viewing.

Here’s a call to all members..................we would love to have others assume some of the jobs for our chapter. They are NOT big jobs, just some "pitching in" to help with short term needs. Hopefully you can attend our board meetings on the second Tuesdays of odd-numbered months. That’s where we come up with plans for future meetings, so you’ll enjoy the fun of learning what’s out there.

Please contact Lisa ( if you would like to help.
