SFSNAD is a nonprofit hand embroidery school located on Union Square, SF.
Our mission is to promote and share the knowledge and history of hand embroidery and needlework to ensure its future as a valued art form.

Every Wednesday and Second Saturday, we hold free Stitch-ins for the public. Anyone can bring a needlework or art project, commune in our space, peruse our library of over 3,000 volumes, and build community.
Every third Wednesday, we hold $10 Lunch & Learn lectures led by local artists and historians of needlework.
Anyone in the world can join our Stitch-at-Home Challenges - triannual needlework exhibitions, free and open to all.
