The American Needlepoint Guild, Inc. provides many exciting educational opportunities for its members.
ANG Workshop by Mail offers you the opportunity to stitch a seminar-level piece in the comfort of your own home.
Another educational program is the ANG CyberWorkshop – online classes where you can stitch an exciting piece with the guidance of experienced teachers.
To fulfill the purpose of ANG, Educational Services continues to research possibilities for national projects to create significant forms of needlepoint in places of worship, public buildings, and historical landmarks of the United States. ANG has endeavored to leave a legacy for future generations by completely funding twelve such national projects.
ANG's educational program makes available slide programs of previous seminar exhibits, hands-on stitching projects, and videos. The objective is to provide expanded opportunities for learning. All slide programs and videos are available for loan to all members and chapters.

The majority of our programs are Correspondence Courses. Twenty-two courses are currently available, including classes on a variety of techniques, classes for beginners, classes on color and design, classes for youth, notebook classes and project classes. Correspondence Courses feature one to three lessons exchanged by mail between student and teacher, along with a final critique by the teacher of the finished project. They are designed to be worked by students working on their own, but can also be worked by groups, which can be, but are not restricted to, chapters.
