Opening October 5, 2018 * Society of Winterthur Fellows Gallery

History can be defined as a series of events that are remembered and preserved through time. This exhibit explores the use of embroidery as historical documents that can deepen our understanding of women’s lives. It considers how needlework has been used to remember the past, document the present, and look forward to the future.
