 In June of 2022, we are delighted to once again be featuring the amazing works of those who do needlepoint and cross stitch at A Needle Art Love Story, Chapter IX at the Ball-Eddleman-McFarland House. Both needlepoint and cross stitch give the stitcher an avenue for self-expression and are challenging and rewarding in their own rights. It’s like painting with a needle. In the past 8 years, our exhibit has featured over 604 stitchers and contained more than 5,578 pieces on display from private collections. These artisans, some from across the state, create elaborate needlepoint pieces for every holiday, occasion and reason.

The Party with the Stitchers will honor HFW’s Featured Stitcher, Deidra Pozez, the participating stitchers, donors and sponsors. Honor these talented artisans who create these amazing treasures showcased in the exhibit by becoming a Host Committee member. Host sponsorship includes your name listed as a Patron Supporter on the invitation, listing in the commemorative booklet, one reservation to the Party with the Stitchers on June 8, plus your admittance to the exhibit all 4 days, June 9 – June 12.
