Celebrate Doilies!

Created and curated by Suzann Thompson, Celebrate Doilies includes Suzann’s doily-themed quilts.

Among the quilts, you will find photos and stories about crocheters from local families and beyond. Texas poet Sandi Horton joins the mix with poetry inspired by needlework heirlooms passed down to her by family members.


Celebrate Doilies will be available to travel to other venues beginning in October 2017. For more information contact Suzann at knitandcrochetwithsuzann@outlook.com.

Doesn’t every crocheter have a special place in their heart for doilies?
