Pioneer Days needleworkers have a point to make
Marlinton, WV – In past years, the Pioneer Days Needlework Show has fallen by the wayside, with some contestants actually bringing in work they didn’t do, and some bringing in old works that had been shown for years. The Needlework Show was kind of a motherless child, with all the work piled onto coordinators who had other things to do. But this year, the three Pocahontas County Quilt Guilds have adopted the show, and they’re giving it new life.
In this “live on location” interview from the Pioneer Days festival, Lois Young, of the Minnehaha Village Quilters, talks with us about the changes, the competition, and the point of it all.
