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.
