Rehoboth historical society seeks needlework submissions

July 3, 2022

The Rehoboth Beach Historical Society will open its Annual Needlework Exhibition Saturday, Oct. 1, at the Rehoboth Beach Museum.

More than 80 regional needle artists participate by submitting nearly 100 entries each year. The works are judged by a National Academy of Needlearts certified judge, and awards are given in 10 categories plus a Best in Show. The public is invited to visit the museum to view the show and vote for the People’s Choice award winner.

Needle workers of all ages are encouraged to enter their work. There is a nominal entry fee. For a copy of the application form, go to or call 302-227-7310. Copies are also available at the museum’s front desk.

The exhibit runs from Oct. 1 through Sunday, Nov. 6. All award winners will be posted on the society’s website.

“This is one of my favorite annual events, and we hope to expand each year. Both men and women enter their beautiful handwork, and I am grateful they have shared these works of needle art with us. I am also grateful for the volunteers who made this possible,” said Nancy Alexander, museum director.
