We are the San Diego chapter of the American Needlepoint Guild. We meet monthly to share our love of stitching, increase our knowledge, and participate in fun projects. We welcome all who share our passion, from beginners to needlepoint designers. You may work on the current program or bring your own stitching project to work on during the meeting. We also offer workshops with nationally known designers and open stitching opportunities (unstructured hours of stitching and great conversation with like minded people)! We hope you will join us.Please see below to learn more about us and our needlepoint chapter.
