NEW DATE FOR THE EXHIBIT!!!!

In April of 2021, 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 at Thistle Hill, Chapter VIII.  Both needlepoint and cross stitch give the stitcher an avenue for self-expression and are challenging and rewarding in their own right.  It’s like painting with a needle.  In the past 7 years, our exhibit has featured over 552 stitchers and contained more than 5,218 pieces on display from private collections.  These artisans, some from across the state, create elaborate needlepoint pieces for every holiday, occasion and reason.
