To fulfill the purpose of the American Needlepoint Guild,
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 projects. For
more information about any of these projects, please contact ANG's
Director for Educational Services.
