61st Annual Woodlawn Needlework Show

This year’s Annual Needlework Show’s theme “Needlework in Everyday Life” reminds us that needlework has been an integral part of the creation of everyday items, both as a form of function and of beauty, for thousands of years. Throughout history, across cultures and social status, people have stitched for need, for enjoyment, and in remembrance. Woodlawn’s 61st Annual Needlework Show explores needlework stitched in everyday life – from mending to restore, renew, and reuse, to embellishing often mundane items that otherwise go unnoticed; fine details on clothing, a napkin resting on a lap, a bookmark to remember one’s place, or a blanket for keeping warm.

The show will be open from March 1 to 31 (except Tuesdays) from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. Tours of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Pope-Leighey House will also be available throughout the month. Special programs and tours to be announced on our website.
