A Needle Art Love Story, Chapter VII
In February of 2020, Historic Fort Worth, Inc. is delighted to be featuring again the amazing works of those who do needlepoint.
This year’s exhibit will include a special area showcasing a complementary needle art, cross stitch. The event is now called A Needle Art Love Story at Thistle Hill, Chapter VII. In the past 6 years this exhibit has featured over 452 stitchers and more than 4,214 pieces on display from private collections. Both needlepoint and cross stitch give the stitcher an avenue for self-expression and are challenging and rewarding in their own rights. It’s like painting with a needle. More than 100 stitchers will share over 700 pieces to be showcased in this exhibit.
Thistle Hill Mansion at 1509 Pennsylvania Avenue, Fort Worth 76104.
