The Japanese Embroidery Center was founded in 1989 as a nonprofit educational organization to promote and preserve the art, heritage and culture of Japanese embroidery through the pursuit of Nuido, “The Way of Embroidery.” Our membership has grown from 16 countries, including the United States, Japan, United Kingdom, France, Canada, Germany, Australia and Mexico. However, in order to showcase these intricate works of art to the world and share the art through our classes, we need your help. We are depending on leaders like you to help us preserve and share the ancient art of Nuido™with the world .
