Needle Pointers Magazine



NeedlePointers is the official publication of the Guild. It is traditionally published six times a year: January, March, May, July, September, and November.

In 2019, ANG will publish five issues:  January/February, March/April, May/June, and two combination issues:  July/August/September, and October/November/December.

Subscriptions are available only through membership in the Guild.

The focus of the magazine is solely on the art of needlepoint. Needle Pointers content includes educational articles, projects with charted designs, painted canvas stitch guides, book and video reviews, news of local chapters, national events, and information concerning the Guild.

The Guild began publishing a quarterly newspaper, entitled American    Needlepoint Guild, for its members in 1972. By 1977 the publication      took the form of a journal. With the Summer edition in 1980 it became a magazine with the title Needle Pointers. Bimonthly publication of the magazine began in December, 1984.

Issues of the magazine starting with January 2017 are available on-line through our publisher. 

In addition to the magazine, ANG will be providing periodic web extras and erratum for specific issues here.
