Zwaanendael Museum virtual stitch program to start Jan. 2

December 26, 2020

During January 2021, the Zwaanendael Museum in Lewes will be conducting Stitching on the Light: A Virtual Stitch-Along, an online program in which participants create their own cross-stitch embroidery featuring likenesses of local-area beacons including the Harbor of Refuge, Delaware Breakwater East End and Fenwick Island lighthouses.

Cross-stitch is a form of needlework in which X-shaped stitches are used to form a picture.

Portions of the cross-stitch pattern and instructions will be posted on the museum’s Facebook and Instagram accounts Saturdays, Jan. 2, 9, 23 and 30. Former Zwaanendael Museum historical interpreter Madeline Golden will conduct a cross-stitch workshop streamed live on the museum’s Facebook page at 3:30 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 16.  

Stitching on the Light: A Virtual Stitch Along is free and open to the public.
