North Shore Needle Arts Guild was formed in 1985 by a group of needlework enthusiasts on Vancouver’s beautiful North Shore.

We meet monthly to enjoy presentations on a variety of traditional & contemporary needlework techniques, to “show & share” completed work, to partake in needlework challenges, to learn from the “experts”, to browse the NSNAG lending library for ideas & inspiration but most importantly to have fun and experience an enjoyable social interaction through NSNAG membership.

The variety of needlework art created by NSNAG members is truly inspiring! Please take a look at our Gallery to see examples. Or check out our Posts.

NSNAG also offers workshops throughout the year on needlework techniques taught by instructors recognized both locally and internationally. NSNAG members benefit from correspondence & online needle work courses offered by the Embroidery Guild of America, for details see EGA . Information on needle work resources available to members is shown on our Resources page.

Membership dues are $90.00 per year. We welcome new members of every ability & skill level. Discover your creativity by joining our group!
