St. Paul Needleworkers

Celebrating the 30th anniversary of the St. Paul Needleworkers, this collection of work by members includes hardanger, drawn and pulled thread, temari, blackwork, and crewel.  The techniques are diverse, but the unifying theme for this exhibition is that all of artists use a common tool – a needle with an eye.

The St. Paul Needleworkers are the only Minnesota chapter of the Embroiderers’ Guild of America.
