In Part I of this series, I shared examples of crewel embroidery conserved at MTS and the early-20th-century Needlecraft Magazine article teaching needleworkers how to practice this craft. In Part II, we explore two more textile genres.
The article "Gay Posies on a Quilted Coverlet" appeared in the July 1934 issue of Needlecraft: the Home Arts Magazine, p. 8.
Museum Textile Services is New England's premier textile conservation studio. I work there as the collections management and textile conservation intern, and contribute to the blog on a semi-regular basis.
