The Shenandoah Valley Tapestry recreates, in needlework, Page Huff Dillon’s painting Winchester and Frederick County, Virginia, commissioned by Margaretta Barton Colt, author of Defend the Valley.

Eighty-one stitchers, including six children, of all skill levels, from five states and from abroad brought the tapestry to life. 1400 people took just one stitch. All their names are recorded in the Tapestry Journal located in the Stewart Bell, Jr. Archives Room at the Handley Region Library, Winchester, Virginia.
