The NAN Exemplary, held each year in March, has some of the most innovative a beautiful needlework you’ll see. Although it encompasses more than just needlepoint, you’ll find lots of inspiring pieces here.
They have just added this year’s winners to their website. The first page has an overview with thumbnails of all the winners. These are organized by category. Click on any thumbnail and you’ll go to a detail page about the piece. There you’ll find a bigger picture, information about the piece, and a short artist’s statement.
