The 52nd Annual Needlework Exhibition at Woodlawn, Alexandria, Virginia will take place in March 2015.
Woodlawn was the home of Eleanor Custis Lewis, a great needleworker and the exhibition honours her legacy. Funds raised are used to preserve the estate, which is a completely self-supporting non-profit historic site.
The needlework exhibition accepts entries in a number of categories including Fine Hand Sewing and Smocking- why not consider entering? Entries can be mailed to arrive no earlier than January 16, 2015 and no later than February 6, 2015. You can also drop off your entry in person between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm on February 6 and & 2015.
You could also visit the exhibition which begins March 1 and ends March 31, 2015 (closed Tuesdays). Opening times are 10:00am to 4:00 pm. Admission fee is $12 (free to exhibitors).
A light lunch is served daily from 11:30 am -2:00 pm and reservations are recommended for large groups. Lunch is created and served by members of Nelly’s Needlers. Proceeds (including tips) from the luncheons go to support Woodlawn.
