Why You Need to Belong To a Stitching Guild

Mary Waldsmith explains better than I ever could why you need to belong to a stitching guild.

One of the most common questions I hear on Facebook at the Needlepoint Group is whether there's anyone near (fill in the blank city) who'd like to get together and stitch?  The need to hang out with other stitchers is universal.

The American Needlepoint Guild has chapters all over.  If you aren't close to one, they also have a Cyber Chapter available so you can meet online with other stitchers who can't make it to a local meeting.  (Note that ANG is having trouble with their website so be patient if you don't get answers right away.  Their webmaster is trying to fix the issues ASAP.)

The Embroiderer's Guild of America also has many chapters including an online one.  Although their focus is broader than needlepoint, they have many needlepointers in their ranks.

Both organizations have annual seminars and regional meetings as well as local get-togethers.  Both send out inspirational magazines as part of your dues.  Time to sign up and help spread the word about needlepoint and needlework!

Thanks for the reminder, Mary.
