The 54th Annual Needlework Show will open at Woodlawn, Alexandria, Virginia on March 1.
The show is supported each year by the Nelly's Needlers, an all-volunteer group of needleworkers.
You can submit your needlework pieces even if you do not live locally.Your piece must be mailed in between January 11 and February 1. For a piece to be eligible, it has to have been made by a living person, stitched with hand-held, threaded needle and finished appropriately.

I know from visiting the show a few times that smocking and heirloom sewing and embroidery is well represented, but more pieces would always be great publicity for our wonderful needlearts!
