Philadelphia Needlepoint Seminar Events and Venues Open to the Public August 24-31, 2012

Filed under: ANG Seminar 2012

Although you must be registered for Seminar to attend the many classes that are offered, there are many events and venues that are opened to all ANG members and the general public. Many classes are still available & registration remains open until July 6, 2012.

The Seminar Exhibit is a collection of some of ANG’s most amazing stitched pieces. ANG Certified Judges will award the many “place” ribbons and the coveted Special Ribbons to the “best of the best”. You will also see on display the 2013 Seminar class pieces and the various classes offered through the Distance Learning Programs. Since ANG is celebrating its 40th Anniversary, you will see some of ANG’s history as told through past Seminar logos and other memorabilia.

The ANG Bookstore once again has Ruth Kern Books as the vendor. Find some of the most popular stitch books by some of the best teachers in the needlework industry. Shop for some of the “old” books no longer available or some of the newest stitch-related novels!

The ANG Shop welcomes Rittenhouse Needlepoint, of Philadelphia, as our 2012 shop vendor. Russell Palmer, Rittenhouse co-owner, promises to have a large variety of threads, canvases, and charted needlework on hand, including 5 trunk shows. You will also get to meet their in-house painter, finisher, and framer. Russell promises to make this a huge celebration in honor of ANG’s anniversary!

The Opportunity Baskets will have a large number of baskets filled with wonderful stitching merchandise donated by generous vendors and ANG members and chapters. You can purchase raffle tickets for $1 each and place the ticket in your favorite “wish I had that” basket. The winning tickets will be pulled at the Closing Banquet, but you do not have to be present to win! The tickets will be available for purchase throughout Seminar week.

Tuesday, Auction 28th, is Auction Day. The Silent Auction is open for viewing and bidding from 7:30am – 5:30pm. At the close of the Silent Auction, you can begin viewing the Live Auction items. The Live Auction begins at 7:00pm, with ANG’s favorite auctioneer, Randy Holford. This is always an exciting evening of bidding! Please remember you can only bid if you have a bidder number. Those will be available Monday evening, August 27 from 6:00-8:00pm and all day on Tuesday.

Teachers’ Showcase is Wednesday, August 29, from 7:00-8:00pm. Visit with many of ANG’s best teachers and get information about their teaching schedules and the many classes they have to offer to your chapters.
