It’s all about needlepoint..

Monthly Meetings

LHANG meets on the second Thursday of each month, January through November, in the Conference Room at Chevron Phillips Chemical Company, 1826 Kingwood Drive at Ladbrook, Kingwood TX. Meetings start at 6:45.

We start each meeting with a business meeting and then progress into Show and Tell. Members and guests bring their latest accomplishments to share. It’s so inspiring to see the work of others!

We finish the meeting with the monthly educational program. Many times participants will stitch together on a directed project; other times we will have an open stitching session.

We welcome visitors and would be very happy to have you join us for education and friendship.

Join us for dinner at 5:30 p.m. before the meetings at Jason’s Deli, 1275 Kingwood Drive, Kingwood TX 77339.


Monthly Stitch-In

Stitching together is a fun activity to promote fellowship through stitching. So we get together once a month to do just that! Check the calendar for locations, as they vary depending on where we can book space.

Bring your current project, visit and stitch with us! This is an informal way to get to know other needlepointers in the Kingwood area, and it’s a come-and-go arrangement. Typically, we meet from 10AM until 3PM, so bring your lunch.

This is a free event! Look forward to seeing you there!


Annual Retreat

Each year our members take a weekend trip, the purpose of which is to stitch, have fun, enjoy each others’ company, and explore a needlepoint shop in another city. Past trips have been to Austin where The Needle Works has hosted the group. Members who go rave about the experience. Watch the calendar for this year’s information.
