The Needleworker of the Year 2000

First-Place Award for Needlepoint
Jeffrey Kulick
Nominated by Needlewoman East
Falls Church, Virginia
Prize sponsored by JCA, Inc.

Family Maze
Artist Statement

The design was created in August 1999, stitched over the fall and completed in November 1999. The pillow was finished in January 2000. This original design has two historical elements. First, it is a traditional maze, conceived after research on ancient and medieval labyrinths. One path takes you from the entrance to the center. To enter, hold the pillow so that the bars in the center rectangle are horizontal. The entrance will be at the right edge. Second, the names of all four family members are hidden in the maze design. Scott and Drew are the two sons of Betsy and Jeff.

“BETSY” is in the upper right quadrant. “SCOTT” is in the lower right; “DREW” in the lower left; and, “JEFF” in the upper left. The letters are stylized and may be in either the blue or silver-green. In keeping with the historical design, the labyrinth path travels through each of the elements of the design—the names—and ends in the center. Two threads are used—Watercolours® Sage and Blueberry. A Scotch stitch is used throughout.
