WV Day Open House at Glenwood
On open house day, Mrs. Smith arrived before 10 am, ready to meet & greet visitors with the assistance of Shelley Kanner. Later on, Lynn Meyer & Gail Bellamy were on the scene. It was certainly a treat for visitors to have the expertise of these talented weavers to aid in their understanding & appreciation of the fine skill of weaving.
We extend our gratitude & appreciation to Barbara & all the Lucy Quarrier Weavers! Glenwood’s open house could not happen without our much-appreciated volunteers! Joining Kemp Winfree, Darrell Cadle, Marla Griffith & the Lucy Quarrier Weavers named above, we value & recognize: Ashley Clark, Mike & Dot Gioulis, James Griffith, Megan Sharp, Carol Susman & Bella Winfree. While not on-site during the event, Larry Tucker works tirelessly behind the scenes throughout the year.
We couldn’t do it without you!
An overcast sky & frequent threats of rain didn't deter visitors to the Historic Glenwood Estate on West Virginia Day, June 20, 2023. Approximately, 60-70 guests enjoyed the hospitality of Glenwood volunteers as they took in the treasures of this beautiful mansion while listening to period music played on the parlor’s grand piano by Marjie Foster.
While the home itself has plenty to offer, this year’s festivities were enhanced by a special exhibit, “Weave Truth with Trust: The Woven Art of Miss Lucy Quarrier.” The theme was chosen to highlight a small double-weave wall hanging created by Miss Lucy in 1938. This intricately designed item was prominently displayed on the loom in the upstairs hallway of the house.
The entire display was created in conjunction with the Lucy Quarrier Weavers. Barbara Smith coordinated the weavers & recruited volunteers. She arranged for weavers Fran Moore & Barbie Sadolf to visit the week prior to the event to carefully select the items to be displayed. Mrs. Sadolf also loaned a wooden rack to aid in the display of some of the woven goods.
