Pacific Northwest Needle Arts Guild 2015

The Pacific Northwest Needle Arts Guild was organized in 1972 for educational purposes, to encourage individuals, without discrimination, to pursue knowledge in the needle arts and to raise and maintain standards of technique and design.

What do we do?

We encourage needlework of all kinds, and we actively share our knowledge with each other and the wider community. We also bring in teachers from outside of PNNAG to extend our knowledge. Besides holding three general meetings a year, a number of satellites and study groups operate under the PNNAG umbrella. We maintain an extensive needlework library at our office at the Good Shepherd Center in the Wallingford neighborhood of Seattle. We sponsor an annual fiber show, offer classes and sales, and share with the community as the Gift Gang of the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. We welcome all who are interested to join us.

Gift Gang

The Gift Gang is our charitable project. We fill about 86 bags (made by members of the guild) with items left from the fundraiser as well as items especially made for Gift Gang by guildmembers. The bags are delivered to cancer patients at the UW Hospital.
