NHTIC Cancels March 1 Needlework Demonstrations


The National Historic Trails Interpretive Center (NHTIC) is cancelling the needlework demonstrations scheduled to take place March 1 between 1 and 3 p.m. due to a winter storm forecasted for Casper Friday afternoon through Sunday morning.

The demonstrations, by members of the Casper Needle Guild, will be rescheduled to take place at a later date.

Two temporary exhibits, “Women of Courage” Quilt and “Plain and Fancy: Art of the Needle” open March 1 and run through April.

“Plain and Fancy: Art of the Needle” was coordinated by the Casper Needle Guild, and curated by Sue Blakey, director of the Wyoming Fiber Trails Project, and Alex Rose, interpreter at the NHTIC.  The exhibit includes 55 pieces representing needlework techniques.  “Plain and Fancy” celebrates the 40th anniversary of the Casper Needle Guild, established in 1974.

For more information contact the NHTIC, 307-261-7780.



The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
