Admire threadwork from Dolores Bausum's travels to China and India.

Then, discover the unique Swedish traditions of "hair work" and admire the beautiful jewelry, hair bands, and watch chains made of braided hair. See a beautiful but unfinished embroidered coat of arms designed for Jerusha Pitkin. Discover the ancient Parsi trade and Chinese Gara embroidery. You'll also get a goldwork pattern to stitch. Then, crochet a point d'eglantier collar adapted from an original 1854 pattern published in Frank Leslie's Gazette of Fashion.
