An opening reception for the National Embroider’s Guild of America exhibition titled Through the Needle’s Eye will take place 6 to 8 p.m. tonight at the Stevens County Historical Society and Museum at 116 West 6th Street in Morris. Through its run until the end of March, there will be guest artists, special classes, a bus tour and the Cherrywood Challenge Quilt Exhibit in February, featuring a theme of the late musician Prince.

Museum Office and Program Coordinator Lori Kurpiers (Kur-pee-ers) and volunteer Susan Gilbert told KMRS that the exhibit comes to Morris every few years with new pieces, and attracts people from all over the state as it is the only location in the Midwest hosting the exhibit.

The Prairie Renaissance Cultural Alliance is also having a reception tonight from 6 to 8 p.m. for their companion exhibit, Needle and Thread, which features juried works from regional fabric artists.
