Welcome to GPR

Technique: Silk and Metal Embroidery
Stitched by: Lynda F
Greater Pacific Region encompasses northern California, northern Nevada, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, Alaska, and Hawaii. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in needlework. We have a very diverse membership ranging from those who are beginning their first stitching project to people who teach nationally. We all have in common an appreciation of the art of stitchery and an insatiable desire to learn and share with our fellow stitchers. Individual Chapters offer educational programs and resources such as an informative newsletter, embroidery libraries, embroidery workshops, shorter projects and informal gatherings. Your membership entitles you to participate in National educational opportunities such as seminars and correspondence courses, and you receive the quarterly magazine Needle Arts.

You may belong to one or more chapters, or you may be a member-at-large. A complete list of Greater Pacific Region's chapters appears in the GPR Chapter Directory. Most chapters welcome your membership even if you don't live close enough to go to meetings. Some GPR chapters, such as Rose City Stitchers and Vintage Stitchers, have special programs for long distance members. Each chapter belongs to a region such as Greater Pacific Region, which serves all chapter members and members-at-large in the region and coordinates inter-chapter activities. Your chapter dues include your national membership dues, and a small portion of your chapter dues funds the Region organization.
