Embroiderers' Guild of America (EGA)

While Antiques Roadshow was in Kentucky, they took field trips to Perryville; the Muhammad Ali Center; and the Embroiderers' Guild of America in downtown Louisville.

Watch this segment to learn why Louisville’s museum dedicated to embroidery drew Roadshow’s attention ... and deserves yours.
