She became so adept at needlepoint, she wrote a book on her pieces, Rush said. “Mary Martin Needlepoint” isn’t a “how-to” book on needlepoint but discusses her pieces and the inspiration behind them. Many of the sweaters she wore throughout the years, many with tie-ins to her personal memories, will be part of the exhibit.
The exhibit is a fundraiser with proceeds going toward updating the gallery, Rush said. Admission to Wednesday’s event is free, which includes tours of the museum itself. Refreshments will be served.
The Doss Heritage and Culture Center is located at 1400 Texas Drive. For more information on the exhibit, call the center at 817-599-6168 or visit dosscenter.org.
