It's a beautiful venue for displaying needlework and I'm looking forward to this year's exhibit.
|Montpelier Mansion, Laurel, MD|
November 24, 2014--Recently visited the Montpelier Mansion in Laurel, MD to see their 19th Annual Needle Art Exhibit which runs from November 1 through November 30, 2014. I was joined by a co-member of the ANG Delaware's Seashore Chapter and we were amazed at the number of beautiful samplers displayed, but dismayed at the very few needlepoint pieces (less than 5 from what we could tell). The samplers, however, were so wonderful that I'm seriously considering doing one. A trip to In Stitches in Alexandria, VA is in order.
Fortunately we met the organizer for this event and she told us that needlepoint exhibits are most certainly welcomed and was pleased to learn that our Delaware chapter members would be very interested in exhibiting our pieces at Montpelier next year. The entry fee is $5 per item and there is no limit to how many pieces you can exhibit. I for one love the venue.
