One for the Ladies

May 23, 2010

“Two unique features have contributed to the popularity and the satisfactions of both creating new and collecting old needlework. Foremost is the fact that throughout history no other tangible art has been so associated with women. It is true that men have pursued (and are pursuing) this art form, but their contribution, as amateur needleworkers, has been a minimal one.—Betty Ring,  in the introduction of Needlework-An Historical Survey (1975)
