Membership is open to persons who are genuinely interested and want to participate in some form of needlework. Annual dues are $60 in 2022 and include local, regional, and national affiliation. Annual dues for plural members within the Tennessee Valley Region are $18 or $21 for plural members outside the Tennessee Valley Region. Members receive Needle Arts (a quarterly full-color publication of the national EGA).

Visitors are welcome at all meetings. However, Chapter policy states that a person may only attend two meetings before becoming a member.
