Needle Art Love Story

Next March, we are delighted to once again be featuring the amazing works of those who do needlepoint, cross stitch and hand embroidery at A Needle Art Love Story, Chapter XI at the Ball-Eddleman-McFarland House. Each form gives 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 10 years, our exhibit has featured over 715 stitchers and contained more than 6344 pieces on display from private collections. These artisans, some from across the state, create elaborate needlework pieces for every holiday, occasion and reason.

 

The Party with the Stitchers will honor HFW’s Featured Stitcher, Name to be Announced, 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 March 6, plus your admittance to the exhibit all 3 days, March 7 – 9, 2025.
