Company Overview
Celebration is the oldest, continuously running needleart show in the U.S. and Canada. It is our goal to continue to provide the best opportunity for local shops to exhibit at a major regional show as well as to unite nationally known designers to teach in New England. Our success is a direct result of hundreds of needle artists who have come to take classes and to hear lectures from the finest teachers we can find and to shop at a marketplace with booths bursting with the latest up-to-date merchandise.
