The legacy of needlework is preserved in museums and historical societies around the world. While many institutions have several items on display, and still others available to study upon request, there are also organizations that have just one or two gems in their possession. Each of these is equally as important in protecting the rich history of needlework.

PieceWork’s Collections Issue takes you inside six private textile and needlework collections—some of which came about entirely by accident like Nancy Bush’s collection of handknitted Estonian lace shawls and scarves. You’ll read about historical tools from knitting sheaths and 19th-century crochet hooks to the under-appreciated doily. Barbara Smith and Angharad Thomas reveal the wonders inside the U. K. Knitting & Crochet Guild’s extensive collection of textiles, patterns, tools, and gadgets. And you’ll have plenty to knit and crochet with six projects, including a lace scarf, a tea cozy, stunning knitted and embroidered gauntlet gloves, and more! Download your copy of PieceWork’s Collections Issue today and explore the extensive heritage of needlework.
