EGA Events

For those with a passion for needle work, attending an EGA event can be one of the most rewarding and inspiring experiences you can have. There are events for learning, showcasing, and just marveling at the art others produce. If you’ve never been to an EGA event, go. If you have, we know you’ll be back. In the meantime, have a look at what’s coming your way.

    Woodlawn Estate was the first family home of Eleanor “Nelly” Custis, the granddaughter of George and Martha Washington and one of America’s foremost needle workers. Our annual Needlework Show & Sale, now in its 55th year, honors her legacy as an American crafter by showcasing hundreds of amazing needlework creations from artists across the country and maintaining the long tradition of the needle arts today. Along with the Woodlawn mansion, our property hosts the iconic Pope-Leighey House, designed by famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright. This year, we are highlighting his passion for Japanese design elements with an exhibit on traditional Japanese embroidery, specialty tours of Pope-Leighey House and its Japanese influences, and much, much more!
