Family Embroidery with Shannon Downey


What’s Happening?

Sunday Funday is back! One Sunday of the month, the Neill-Cochran House Museum opens its doors to feature hands-on activities, scavenger hunts, and space to enjoy lunch in the shade. Though this version will be more sanitized and socially-distant than previous iterations, we hope you and your family take the opportunity to come out and do some crafts with us.

Embroidery is not just for the parents! Its for the whole family! Join Shannon Downey and the Neill-Cochran House Museum and start those family embroidery nights!

You will learn about all of the materials and how to use them, how to get set up, designing your piece, how to work with patterns, and backstitch to start. You will be a pro stitcher in no time.

After learning how to embroider, take a moment to check out Rita’s Quilt and our Remembered by Hand Quilt Exhibit.

Our monthly Sunday Funday series is free with the price of museum admission. This is a drop-in event; it is not necessary to arrive at 1:00pm nor stay until 4:00pm to enjoy the activity. Though this activity will be taking place primarily outdoors, we still ask that all visitors wear masks at all times on the museum property. The Neill-Cochran House Museum is happy to provide free parking for our guests.
