Mainline Stitchers

The members of the Main Line Stitchers, a local chapter of the American Needlepoint Guild, Inc.™, have enjoyed taking classes from Orna and are pleased to share her extraordinary needlework designs that we have stitched over the years. Contact us at  ang.mls.needlepoint@gmail.com for more information about our monthly meetings and Stitch-ins.

Orna Willis

Color is Orna Willis’ greatest fascination.  Design and architecture have always intrigued Orna and her use of geometric shapes is what she brings from that love.  Her work is meant to bring pleasure, first to the senses, then to the mind.  When the senses are stimulated, the mind will work all the better.  Her art is her story, told with a needle and hand dyed fibers.  The dance of Middle Eastern color with the structure of mathematics intrigue Orna.  She paints with her needle and tells the tale of tradition, history, and origin in a contemporary way.

This show will include her works from the past 20 years. She has chosen to show both wall pieces and jewelry, the thread that connects all her work is her bold exploration of color and shape.

Orna’s work has been exhibited in galleries across the country as well as in England and Israel. Her work is a part of the city of Philadelphia’s permanent art collection and can be seen in the new section of the Philadelphia Convention Center.
