Historical Needlework Display: Article Online


Amazon Books

If you are not following the progress on the embroidered jacket at Plimoth Plantation, you may have missed this article in the New York Times about the historical needlework exhibition at the Bard Graduate Center in NYC. Even if you don’t live in NYC and don’t plan to visit before the exhibit closes in April, 2009, the article is still worth reading! Great photos, too!

I’m running a bit short on time (surprise, surprise!), but I hope to get a chance to show you later today what I (hardly) accomplished yesterday…

In the meantime, have a terrific day – and go read that article (or at least look at the photos!)

  1. Hi, Mary. I tried to put the NY Times article on my blog and couldn’t. I got a message that it was not a legitimate URL. After trying several times, I gave up. I hope you also viewed the slide show that accompanied the article. Oh, to be able to see that exhibit in person.
