Callaway Gardens School of Needle Arts

-

The Callaway Gardens School of Needle Arts has been one of America’s premier needle arts events for more than four decades. The school is lauded for its world-class faculty and creative course offerings, as well as the long-lasting friendships it sparks among students who return year after year.

Additionally, the school includes a well-stocked boutique, a bookstore offering new and rare out-of-print titles, a juried needle arts exhibit sponsored by the Dogwood Chapter of The Embroiderers’ Guild of America, Inc., and two merchandise nights featuring the latest in needlework tools, beads, wearable art and more.

Combine all these factors with our wonderful Winter destination. Where else can you attend a needle arts school among beautiful Gardens in a moderate January climate? It all adds up to No. 1 in Needle Arts!
