During the 2015 Annual Meeting we will enjoy the comforting and creative expertise that is showcased in a fine arts needlework national exhibition named “Through the Needle’s Eye.” Along with special weekend events, classes and exhibits, the annual meeting will be about a unique way that a community used the medium of needlework to express grief, loss and rebirth. They engaged creatively in a group needlework project.
“Eye of the Hurricane” Project Needlework Classes, led by Barbara McPhee, National EGA Instructor, will be held at the museum on Jan. 31st & Feb. 7th, 2015.
