Through the Needle’s Eye

January 14 – March 30, 2019

Opening reception Thursday, January 17, 2019, 6-8pm


The Embroiderers’ Guild of America (EGA) acknowledges the value of needlework in art and history. The National Exhibit is a representative selection of the best in artistic and technical works. It is through the needle’s eye that the EGA embraces both traditional and contemporary needlework while expanding the perception of embroidery as an art form. For more information about the Guild visit:

Your Stevens County History Museum has a terrific fiber arts extravaganza in the works for your enjoyment!  Check out this line up—mark your calendars for lots of events, and check back for updates! Stay tuned for details on a jumble sale of fiber arts materials and open stitching sessions!  Ask about our scholarships for kids!
