B.C. Stitchers  

 A Chapter of the Embroiderers' Guild of America  

About Us


The B.C. Stitchers Chapter is a member of The Embroiderer's Guild of America, Inc. founded in 1958.  B.C. Stitchers, a member of the Mid-Eastern Region of EGA, was established in 1978 to serve the Southern Tier of New York.  The original chapter name was New York Susquehanna Country Chapter.  The name was changed in 2000, to the B.C. Stitchers when cartoonist Johnny Hart drew the logo for our use.

We usually meet monthly at the Endwell Fire Station on the first Wednesday of the month.  However, due to Covid we sometimes meet in-person or at times via Zoom, so if you are interested in joining us, please contact us at bcstitchers@live.com for further information.
