As part of Stitch In Public Day, Executive Director of Belle Grove Kristen Laise will explain the “Honoring” quilt project and about some of the 270 individuals enslaved at the plantation between 1783-1862. Attendees will learn how to make three basic stitches called the running stitch, backstitch, and split stitch from the President of Winchester Chapter of the Embroiderers’ Guild of America, Elaine Evans. Patrons will have a chance to select a name of the enslaved person and then stitch it. The workshop is free and open to the public. Stitching supplies are provided.
