The Needleworker's Library

MicrosoftTeams-image (36).pngThese competitive exhibits give you a chance to show off your hard work, and possibly win a prize! Catagories that needleworkers can enter include quilts, afghans, cross stitch, toys, and so much more. Check them out here.


Needlework has been around for over 60,000 years. Needleworkers marked safe passage using freedom quilts, soothed preemie babies, and helped send astronauts to space. Countless treasured works have made history. And more have brought warmth, art and comfort to homes across the world. 

These free resources are great for needleworkers and available at the library.
