Texas Crochet Heritage Exhibit

The Crochet Heritage exhibit concentrates on crochet doilies and their role in our crochet heritage. Also included in the exhibit are doilies made with other techniques, and items that aren't doilies at all. Doily heritage includes looking into a host of other subjects. 

Doilies are much more than pretty home decor items. They tell the stories of old times and new, of family traditions and friendships, of how people still live. 

Celebrate Doilies Art Quilt Exhibit Details: 18-20 quilted wall hangings of varying sizes, featuring doilies or vintage crochet, by Suzann Thompson.  Each one includes a hanging rod with an eyelet screw on each end, allowing them to be hung with filament or mounted directly to the wall. 
6 heritage crochet pieces, to be displayed with poems by Sandi Horton. 

2 20" x 28" foam core posters about doilies past and present, to be displayed with four modern doilies. 

Optional: two eye-catching oversized doilies to hang inside or outside the exhibition space.
