To be put on the interest list for any of the workshops below, please contact the Workshop Chairman. MEMBERS ONLY, PLEASE.

Workshops are usually held on weekends and are taught by nationally known needlework teachers. The workshop may be a pilot class in which the teacher is testing a design for the first time, or it may be a class in which an established design is taught. Needle artists from all over the country attend our workshops.

Workshops are open to members of the San Bernardino and Sunkissed (San Dimas) Chapters of ANG as well as to members of the Baldy View and Inland Empire Chapters of the Embroiderers' Guild of America. Other EGA and ANG members are accepted when there is room. For further workshop information and registration, please contact the Workshop Chairman.

MEMBERS of the SBANG chapter may see pictures and descriptions of the workshop projects by joining our chapter group on the ANG national website.

NOTE: The term "Ghosts," as used in the workshop notes below, means members who pay class fees in order to receive instructional materials but who are unable to attend the workshop in person. Please click here for further information about ghosting procedures and fees.

Classes will be held in Ontario at US Bank, 333 N. Euclid Avenue, unless otherwise noted.

SBCANG member Debby Lambert has developed some etiquette guidelines for her local EGA chapter in Nevada. Several members had never taken a seminar or workshop class, so Debby gathered some good pointers and tips to help them understand what is expected when they have a guest teacher (in this case, Nancy Cucci). Debby has graciously allowed us to share with our members her document, which includes a nice remembrance of Chottie Alderson.

Special Note About Upcoming Workshops

from Pat Correz, our workshop chairman

UPDATE, 9/20/2020: In light of public health concerns, as well as the current unavailability of our meeting room at US Bank, all classes from now through at least January 2021 will be held via the web-based service, which is being used this year for the national ANG seminar. Participants are invited to a private group, the teacher posts lessons and supplemental material, and students can ask questions and exchange information via email at any time.

For these distanced classes, the teacher will still receive her regular fees, but there will be no expenses for travel/meals/hotel/etc., so your teaching fee cost will be very reasonable.

See specific details for all classes below -- changes noted in red. All who have signed up will be receiving personal emails from me.

PLEASE continue with your plans for our workshops. Many teachers have this as a major source of income, and we need to support them. They will bend over backward to ensure they provide the help needed.
