More About Woodlawn 2010

Before you ask, no, I haven't had a chance to get to the Woodlawn Plantation needlework exhibit yet.  Now that the weather has cleared up, I hope to go this week or next, depending on all the appointments scheduled during this time that were postponed from February due to four feet of snow.  I am not sure I will write much about the show, however.  After all, we have a photo gallery to visit and some folks have blogged about it already.

Once again, here are all the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners.*

The owner of The Point of It All, the best known needlepoint shop in Washington, D.C., writes about her visit here.

Susan visited Woodlawn yesterday.  Here's all about her trip with her friend Carolyn.

As Susan says, a separate photo album has been set up to showcase the Japanese Embroidery on display.  You can visit the pieces here.

Donna's been serving as a docent.  I hope once her stint is done she writes about the experience in detail and talks about the pieces she fell in love with and why.  My own limited docent experience tells me you really have time to study the pieces when you are a docent and learn more than a quick visit's study allows.

Claudia on the ANG email list wrote that this is the Best of Show winner.  *She mentioned that she thinks not all the award winners are in the ribbon photo album (the first link above).

I know they don't have the award for The Piece Jane Would Take Home If She Could listed.

You'll have to wait to hear about that.

  2. I hope you are going with then, Jean. I don't ever go on the weekends, however. That's when my husband really gets into gear with chores!

    Ever breath a sigh of relief to get back to work on Monday morning because now you can rest? LOL
