It took us four years to stitch the Tapestry. Along the way we paused from time to time to celebrate our progress and the many hands that made that progress possible. Our journey from the start of stitching through completion is an amazing story with ample cause to celebrate along the way:


  • November 14, 2015 –  JOURNEY THROUGH TIME program with Margaretta Barton Colt  to celebrate the launch of the Tapestry project


  • March-April, 2016 – STITCH IN TIME artwork show to showcase the talents of the Tapestry Project Participants


  • October 29, 2016 – HISTORY TOLD IN STITCHES program with Margaretta Barton Colt and Page Huff Dillon. The first public showing to celebrate the stitched historic buildings of the Tapestry.


  • May 20, 2017 – STITCHES FROM THE GARDEN program and show highlighting the many different colors, techniques, and stitches of the Tapestry gardens and trees.
