This issue focuses on linear embroidery from England, Turkish knitting, twined rag rugs, and Athapaskan beadwork. Needleknitting from ancient Peru, produced 2,000 years ago, still stuns us today. Learn how the Triangle Shirtwaist Company’s tragic fire spurred needed changes in safety and work laws. Discover how samplers of linear motifs were once essential references for embroiderers.
