The 18th Century Tapestries, Phase 1 of the Annapolis Tapestry Project, are now on exhibit at Historic Annapolis Museum, 99 Main Street, in downtown Annapolis adjacent to City Dock at the corner of Green Street. The Exhibit runs through December 31, 2012. Special events and activities are planned as follows:
Friday-Sunday at the Exhibit
See our ‘Work-in-Progress‘: All of the tapestries are stitched in needlepoint. Stitching currently takes place on Friday (morning or midday) and Saturday and Sunday afternoons at the exhibit on one of the small canvases by Annapolis Tapestry Project volunteers. This live needlepoint demonstration provides an opportunity to grasp the full scope of this multilayer, historic project! See for yourself why needlepoint is experiencing a revival in the craft and needlework arena. For specific time and date information about stitching at the Exhibit, please visit “At The Museum: This Week!“.
Our Stitching Volunteers include: Katie Williams, Community Stitching Coordinator and Director for Tapestry Production, and Doris Muller-Burton; Kathy Pendley; Lissa Williamson and Sheryn Blocher.
