Woodlawn Needlework Show & Sale
Woodlawn Estate was the first family home of Eleanor “Nelly” Custis, the granddaughter of George and Martha Washington and one of America’s foremost needle workers. Our annual Needlework Show & Sale, now in its 56th year, honors her legacy as an American crafter by showcasing hundreds of amazing needlework creations from artists across the country and maintaining the long tradition of the needle arts 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
Along with the Woodlawn mansion, our property hosts the iconic Pope-Leighey House, designed by famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright. There will be lots of needlework-related workshops for guests of all ages held throughout the month, a chance to work on finishing your own needlework masterpiece here alongside Nelly’s Needlers or to purchase one of the beautiful pieces displayed in the show, as well as delicious locally-sourced lunches and desserts available on site after you’ve checked out the show. So come join us for the perfect March outing to beat those Winter blues and see what the fuzz is all about!
The Show & Sale runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for the entire month of March, and is open every day, EXCEPT Tuesdays. Included in this admission are demonstrations, special exhibits, talks by local craft artists and the chance to shop at our needlearts gift shop. *Some additional events and workshops are ticketed and may have a fee associated.
