Special Maryland Day Events Planned

Posted on March 8, 2012


Join us for special events  at the exhibit in celebration of Maryland Day!  These activities are offered to museum visitors at no charge on Saturday and Sunday, March 24th and 25th.

…Make History! 

We’ve had over 330 stitchers from the U.S. and around the world.  Here’s your chance to make history, too!

Come to the Historic Annapolis Museum for this special Community Stitching Event from 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday, March 24th and 11 am to 4 pm on Sunday, March 25th.  No experience necessary, as our volunteers will guide you.  Must be between the ages of 6 and 99 years old.

Add your stitches to one of our 18th and 19th century original artwork tapestry canvases; sign your name in the Stitchers Log; and become a part of this historic project!  The Stitchers log will become part of the permanent exhibit of the Annapolis Tapestries Project.

…See Our Work-in-Progress

Watch as our expert stitchers work on one of the medium-sized 18th century tapestry panels, the Sparrows Seal, and demonstrate needlepoint techniques used on all of the tapestries in the Exhibit.  Needlepoint is experiencing a revival in the craft and needlework arena.  Learn first hand how our stitchers create the beautiful tapestry panels.

…Discover Visual Storytelling and the City’s Heritage Tapestry

Turning words into pictures, cities and towns around the world create heritage tapestries that visually tell the story of, and preserve, local history. Chat with members of the Historians Work Group who selected well-known and many lesser-known, yet significant, people, places and events that shaped the City over three centuries from 1708-2008 and portrayed on the tapestry panels.
