Is there a needlepoint museum in the US/Canada?

It seems your headline is your question, but I'll give you a little info.
In Lowell, Massachusetts, there are some very interesting museums, as well as a National Park, dealing with the begining of the Industrial Revolution in the US. This was, of course, textiles. I can't say there is specifically a museum devoted to needlepoint there, but there are a number of related museums you might find fastenating. See these websites for more information.
City of Lowell (with good links)

American History Textile Museum (web isn't connecting, but info on Lowell site is good)
The national park itself runs at least two museums about the life of the people who worked in the textile industry and the industry itself (Boots Mill and the Boarding House Museum).
Lowell is a great way to spend a day near Boston, and I fear it's largely overlooked by our tourists. I take visitors up there at least once a year, and visit the American Textile museum for their special shows (Princess Di's dresses, Hollywood costumes, etc.) when they are there. It's worth the time to check it out.
