This is the home of CyberPointers, the internet-only chapter of the American Needlepoint Guild. So why are we here? Our members all love needlework and love to share that passion with others. Some members live too far from a face-to-face chapter, some members are looking for more educational opportunities, and other members just love chatting about needlepoint on the computer. All our members are saving time for more stitching by not driving to a meeting, and we’re all using our technology to make our world a little greener (no gas, remember?).
Are you not a member yet? Read our Learn page for more info on what we do and how we work. Then join us and have some needlepoint fun! You can also learn about needlepoint and opportunities to help the community on our Outreach Page.
Since we are an online chapter all chapter business is done via Yahoo! Groups that are open for CyberPointers Members ONLY.
Meetings are the first Thursday through the following Monday of each odd numbered month (January, March, May, July, September and November). Attendance will be taken each day of the meetings for quorum purposes. Meetings are open to members of CyberPointers only. You can become a member by going to the join page.

Upcoming Educational Opportunities
CyberPointers offers a variety of educational opportunities throughout the year with a variety of workshops, ANG Correspondence Courses, and other surprise projects. A variety of techniques led by well-known teachers/designers as well as CyberPointers members make up the schedule. Some of these opportunities are for members only and some are open to all stitchers.
In 2012 and 2013, CyberPointers implemented a rebate program for eligible
members. All rebates had to be claimed by June 30, 2016. Any rebates not claimed by June 30, 2016 reverted back to the chapter.
