NY Capital District EGA Chapter's stitches serve as background for NY Governor's Press Conferences

NY Capital District Chapterís stitches serve as background for NY Governorís Press Conferences



The lovely goldwork on green and burgundy draperies that can be seen in the background when New York Governor Andrew Cuomo gives his press conferences from NYS Capitol, Executive Chamber, was stitched by the NY Capital District Chapter of the EGA.

What began as a 10 month project evolved into a 4 year charge and over 6,000 hours of research, designing, planning and organizing and concentrated stitching. Actual stitching began in April 1988 with completion in October. There are 10 panels each measuring 20″x50″; each required about 500 hours of exacting embroidery by 28 Golden Girls! Great job ladies!
