Beautifying the home through tasteful forms of needlework was a practice that shaped the domestic roles and leisure activities of nineteenth-century women. In featuring over 40 objects from the museum’s collection, such as samplers, household textiles, costumes, and archival materials, this exhibition explores various kinds of plain and fancy needlework and how the custom was considered an essential component of a woman’s upbringing."
