This issue explores Ukrainian embroidery, beaded bags from the Civil War era, Flemish bobbin tape lace, rickrack, and more. Discover the vibrant folk embroideries that survived the perilous journey from the Ukraine to the Pacific Northwest of the United States. Read how small beaded bags carried their makers as surely as their makers carried them in difficult times during the Civil War. Learn how custom-embroidered garments and needlework “paintings” created a second career for the talented Maginel Wright Barney. Uncover why the painstaking skill of hitching in horsehair was passed from inmate to inmate in western U.S. prisons.
