To foster the highest standard of excellence in the practice of needlework through programs of education and study.

The Needlework Guild of Minnesota is a non-profit educational organization founded to promote high quality in the art of needlework. Membership provides an opportunity for the interchange of ideas among people interested in stitchery. Time and talent are given freely so the result is a group for all levels of learning. Our members enjoy fellowship with enthusiasm that is contagious and works to the benefit of everyone.
