Created and curated by Suzann Thompson, Celebrate Doilies includes Suzann’s doily-themed quilts, like Afternoon at right.
Among the quilts, you will find photos and stories about crocheters from local families and beyond. Texas poet Sandi Horton joins the mix with poetry inspired by needlework heirlooms passed down to her by family members.
If you would like to share stories and photos of doilies from your family or friends for future exhibits, please visit Doily Heritage Project. The deadline for submissions to be included in the Granbury exhibit is June 1, 2017.
Celebrate Doilies will be available to travel to other venues beginning in October 2017. For more information contact Suzann at email@example.com.
