EGA LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES
Our National offers a wide variety of high quality courses that allow members to take intensive learning in a specialized area. After completing the course, you will be able to submit your work to the national teacher and receive a valuable critique. The listing of these courses may be seen in Needle Arts or on the web at www.egausa.org
There are four ways to take these courses:
1. Form an interest group of about 10 members here to share the costs and appoint one person to serve as coordinator.
2. For those classes with only one or two local members interested, the Great Lakes Region serves as coordinator for a number of classes each year. The list for 2011 may be found at the end of this newsletter. You must register by November and you will receive your materials sometime in January.
3. The website sponsors two new classes each month.
4. Each edition of Needle Arts has class specials.
