“The Daughters of the American Revolution is America’s foremost lineage society. Their national headquarters in Washington, DC not only holds their vast research archives but also hosts a world-class museum with artifacts related to their members and history.

From their website: “The DAR Museum supports the NSDAR’s goals of historic preservation, education and patriotism by collecting, preserving, exhibiting and interpreting the material culture and social history of pre-industrial America.”

We’re excited to be able to bring you up close to history through an examination of some of their remarkable textiles.  Through our detailed photos of samplers and needlepaint art, we’ll examine the impact of needlework on lineage research and how historians utilize clues from embroideries as a tool in their work.”
