Celebrating 35 years of Stitching! See our About Us page for details.

We are the San Diego chapter of the American Needlepoint Guild. We meet monthly to share our love of stitching and 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 offer workshops with nationally known designers and open stitching opportunities (unstructured hours of stitching and great conversation with like minded people). We welcome new members, experienced needlepoint stitchers or those ready to learn a new skill.

The benefits of membership include:

  1. A monthly newsletter
  2. Reduced costs for many exciting workshops taught by some of the country’s top needlepoint designers.
  3. Informative monthly meetings.
  4. Virtual and in-person social stitching meetings.
  5. Learn needlepoint techniques from like-minded members.
  6. Informative monthly programs at our monthly meetings. Go to the ABOUT US page for meeting information.
  7. Access to exclusive needlepoint designs.
  8. Access to National needlepoint magazine (exclusive for membership only).
  9. Form lasting friendships.
