2019 Woodlawn Needlework Show & Sale Information
Woodlawn Estate was the first family home of Eleanor “Nelly” Custis, one of America’s foremost needle workers. Our annual Needlework Show & Sale, which in 2019 will be it's 56th year, honors her legacy as an American crafter, maintaining the long tradition of the needle arts, promoting emerging needlework artists, and raising needed funds to preserve our site today.
Woodlawn & Pope-Leighey House has been focusing on telling the full stories of our history, not just of the owners and architects who designed the houses. We expect our 2019 Show to highlight the talents of all needlework makers, embracing a diverse community of artists, that includes people of color, of multi-cultural heritage, and who identify as LGBTQ.
During this month-long event, Woodlawn is open from March 1-31, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., every day, except Tuesday, including weekends.
Note: Certain events will take place beyond these hours, please check our website for updated details. For adequate time to view the Show, visitors should arrive prior to 3:00 p.m.
Pope-Leighey House tours and special exhibit will be open during the same hours as the Woodlawn Show.
2019 Woodlawn Needlework Show Awards
Congratulations to all of our 2019 winners! Once again, your pieces stunned us and our Needlework Judges with their beauty, craftsmanship, and originality.
It’s never too early to plan to bring YOUR group to enjoy the Needlework Show & Sale AND enjoy a local lunch at Nelly’s Café!
Thinking of an outing in March for your activity group? Our Needlework Show & Sale can be the perfect answer to the “usual,” end-of-winter, excursion blues! We offer an opportunity to wander the Woodlawn and Pope-Leighey House property, visit Frank Lloyd Wright’s Pope-Leighey House and of course, visit the Needlework Show! Before or after you tour the Show, sit down and relax in our gorgeous, restored Underwood Room and enjoy a light lunch or dessert, served daily (except Tuesdays) from 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. We love groups!
Large groups of 9 people or over require a reservation in advance.
