THE OAKS OF WOODLAWN SUITE
The Oaks of Woodlawn Suite is a tribute to the stately 200-year-old oaks shading and sheltering Woodlawn, a stately Virginia plantation home and the site of the oldest and most prestigious juried needlework exhibition in the U.S.
The suite, consisting of the large Oaks of Woodlawn wreath, (available now; see Pattern page) and the four individual seasons, has something for everyone, from the most experienced needleartist to the beginner.
In these individual season designs, the oak leaves are interpreted by contrasting painterly soft-shading with stylized trellis and couching, against the rough bark which is worked in buttonhole stitch.
