A Journey Through Time - Stitching the Shenandoah Valley Tapestry
Join Irina Galounina and Becky Ebert on Thursday, March 19th at 4 PM as they present The Shenandoah Valley Tapestry – “A JOURNEY THROUGH TIME”.
The Tapestry is a needlework narrative honoring and celebrating over 275 years of history of Winchester and the northern Shenandoah Valley. It recreates, in needlework, Page Huff Dillon’s painting, Winchester and Frederick County, Virginia, commissioned by Margaret-ta Barton Colt, author of Defend the Valley, a book about the Civil War story of two local families. Eighty-one stitchers, including six children, of all skill levels, from five states and from abroad, brought the tapestry to life. 1400 people took just one stitch. The project is “a great example of public engagement combining elements of history, local heritage, art, and creative expression.”
All Woodlawn Needlework Show Artist Talks are free with a paid ticket to the show on the day they are talking place - there is a suggested donation to our historic site of $5 at the door.
