National Tapestry Project:

Have you seen the EGA National Tapestry Project yet? The brainchild of Carol Dam and Judy Jeroy and designed by Judy, this project was first presented to EGA National in November 2002. The tapestry is made up of 5 panels that were created by painting the design on #18 mono canvas. The tapestry involved stitchers all over EGA and used many techniques. The tapestry represents the geography of our country, and the animals, birds, and plants native to each area. Once completed, the tapestry has been traveling around the country. If you would like to learn more about this fabulous tapestry, and see photos of the 5 completed panels go to http://www.egausa.org/html/national_tapestry.html .

If you wish to see this stunning work in person, from May 13, 2012 through August 26, 2012 it will be on display at the Allentown Art Museum in Allentown PA. For more information contact Kayla O'Connor or www.allentownartmuseum.org.
