Benefits include regularly scheduled meetings, workshops, lectures, stitch-ins, and participating in group correspondence courses. Other benefits include the quarterly magazine, Needle Arts, national seminars and the extensive lending library.

Chapters are organized into 13 regions. Chapter members may attend region events such as seminars, leadership training and workshops. Activities and dues vary from chapter to chapter. Local chapters reach out into the community with volunteer service and projects, showcase their needlework by organizing exhibits and also have newsletters that contain information about chapter, region, national and other needlework activities
