St. Paul Needleworkers (SPN), founded in 1983, is affiliated with the Embroiderers’ Guild of America (EGA), and shares their mission, to inspire passion for the needle arts through education and the celebration of its heritage. 

SPN members meet monthly to share skills and engage in projects together using surface embroidery, counted thread work, needlepoint, Hardanger, canvas work, black work, Temari, white work, drawn thread, and more. Members’ works have won numerous ribbons and awards in Creative Activities at the Minnesota State Fair over the years. Through EGA, members are offered group and individual classes, virtual lectures, and master craftsman certification programs that support the needle arts.  

This 40th Anniversary celebration of SPN’s work on Textile Center’s Guild Wall features work done by many of the guild’s members, both longtime and new. Myriad stitches and knots, threads, yarns, and ribbons abound in celebration of the traditions and technical mastery of needlework that take numerous forms, from pillows to ornaments to samplers to artworks for the wall.
