ThreadIN: Community Needlepoint Project

April 13 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Be part of a community project to create a large needlepoint artwork in collaboration with Jessie Deane, a renowned local artist.

ThreadIN will bring together people from all walks of life to work collaboratively on a large-scale artwork representing harmony and respect.

Over 6 months participants will be mentored by Jessie to create a single needlepoint artwork. When completed the individual pieces will be joined together to form a large-scale collaborative needlepoint artwork to be exhibited as part of the 16 Days of Activism program in November.
