How do I register?
We encourage you to register online at needlepoint.org. When you register online you will be able to see what classes are available, sign-up for the desired classes and know right then if you are in the classes. You may also fax all pages of your completed Registration Form to (856) 439-0525. Completed Registration Forms may be mailed to: ANG, 1120 Route 73, Suite 200 Mount Laurel, NJ 08054-5113. You may also call (856) 380-6911 to register. Please keep copies of all registration materials for your records. List your e-mail address so that the Registrar can correspond with you in this way.
Please note that all requests related to registration (initial registration, class changes, and cancellations) must be made by contacting ANG Headquarters by phone, fax, or e-mail.
The Registrar will send you a confirmation e-mail, or a letter, when your Registration Form is received, within six business days. If you do not receive an e-mail or letter within three weeks of registering online or by phone or mailing or faxing your Registration Form, please contact the Registrar at the above address.
When should I register?
You may register right now! Open Registration will end on June 29. After this date, no registrations of any kind will be accepted and no class changes will be possible. Registration may close before June 29 if classes are full or due to space and facility limitations. NOTE: Classes may be canceled due to low enrollment. Please register early for the best selection of classes.
How does the class registration work?
All registrations will be taken on first come, first served basis. When choosing classes, it is important that you select classes you want to take. Interest in more classes increases your opportunities only if you are willing to take those classes. If your first choice class is already filled, you will have the opportunity to indicate that you would like to be waitlisted for that class. You can then select another class. If there is a cancellation for a class, the next person on that class waiting list will be contacted to see if they would like to take the waitlisted class or keep the alternate class. The waitlists will be maintained until the close of registration on June 29. No class changes will be accepted after June 29!
What if I have to change classes or cancel my Seminar registration?
All cancellations and changes must be made in writing. Classes can be changed, based on availability, until June 29 when Registration officially closes. Refunds for package fees, if classes are changed or canceled, will be processed within one month of the conclusion of Seminar. Your Registration Fee is non-refundable.
What if I have to cancel after the June 29 date?
If you have to cancel after the final date of June 29, please contact the Registrar for further information. If you would like your kits, please tell the Registrar at the time you cancel. Please note that not all teachers release their kits. If the kit is available, the full package price must be paid, plus shipping costs and a handling fee of $15, along with any other fees due for the registration, as per ANG policy. Your kits will be sent to you within one month after the conclusion of Seminar.
What does the term “encore” mean?
This means that a particular class has previously been taught at another ANG Seminar or other similar event.
What about hotel reservations?
Seminar 2018 will be held at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park, 2660 Woodley Road NW Washington, District of Columbia 20008. The hotel is holding a certain number of rooms at our special rate of Standard King or two Double Beds: Single: $159, Double: $169, Triple: $179, Quad: $189, plus local and state taxes.
What if I need a roommate?
If you need a roommate, ANG’s new website will enable you to identify and connect with others who are looking for a roommate, so please check the website for details. If you would prefer to have a list of potential roommates mailed to you, please contact the ANG office. You may then make your own arrangements. In addition, if you decide that you need a roommate after you have registered, you may call the ANG office to inquire about adding your name to the roommate list any time prior to July 15, 2018. Headquarters will continue to share the roommate list as long as there are unmatched persons available.
When do I make my hotel reservation?
MAKE YOUR ROOM RESERVATION EARLY!! Room reservations at ANG’s special rate may be made until the block has been filled or until the hotel’s July 28, 2018 cutoff date. Please note that any change in your reservation may change the rate and/or require payment of cancellation fees. For reservations guaranteed with a form of payment at time of booking, rooms are held until hotel check-out time the day following scheduled arrival. Cancellations must be made at least three days prior to arrival or a one night stay cancellation penalty is charged. In the event of a no-show, a one room night deposit will be charged to the credit card provided at the time of reservation.
