ANG Seminar 2013

This year the American Needlepoint Guild's Seminar is August 23-30 in Anaheim, California.

Here are the classes offered.

And now, here are the Seminar reports, latest on top!

Vicky DeAngelis shows off her prize winner from Seminar.

Liz talks about her first class at Seminar, Pamela Harding's Serengeti.  Lovely!

Liz talks about her second Terry Dryden class.  I've heard Terry is a dynamite teacher and Liz certainly seems to think so.

More Seminar from Elizabeth, the editor of Needlepoint Now.

More Seminar photos from Vicky,

Facebook:  Cindy Lee Manekofsky Gershin has posted photos of her two ribbon winners from Seminar on her FB page.  Beautiful!  The sampler received a perfect score!

Liz Morrow is back from Seminar, with a third place ribbon in her suitcase!  Congratulations, Liz! The second link shows off Leaping Stag, an original design by Liz herself.  The think link shows the piece with its ribbon.

Many congratulations to Sandy Arthur who won ANG's Literary Award at Seminar for her Shapes books!  (And thanks to Sundance for the tip.)  Here's Sandy's report on the classes she took and taught and a few other tidbits about attending Seminar as a teacher.
