UPDATE ABOUT THE EXHIBIT!!!!

In February of 2020, we are delighted to once again be featuring the amazing works of those who do needlepoint.  This year’s exhibit will include a special area showcasing a complementary needle art, cross stitch.  The event is now called A Needle Art Love Story at Thistle Hill, Chapter VII.  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 6 years, our exhibit has featured over 452 stitchers and contained more than 4,214 pieces on display from private collections. These artisans, some from other states, create elaborate needlepoint pieces for every holiday, occasion and reason.

WHAT MAKES THIS SHOW SO UNIQUE?

  1. There isn’t an entry fee to participate.
  2. Your treasures exhibited are not juried.
  3. The Needle Art Committee doesn’t send invitations to stitchers to display their artisanship in this delightful show.
  4. The show is held in a 1904 Cattle Baron Mansion, Thistle Hill (Fort Worth’s first historic landmark).
