3/10/2013 Meeting Highlights

A good time was had Sunday as we learned how death, war, fashion, and mourning rituals of the 18th and 19th centuries influenced needlework. We also examined the artwork and symbolism of 17th and 18th century gravestones to see how it is effecting today’s needleart and how it may influence design of our own memorial sampler. Jewelry, cabinet cards, books, gravestone rubbings, and memorial sampler were on display for inspiration.
