The Mary Alsop Pocketbook Kit

Winterthur Exclusive Product!

Over the course of approximately 60 years, Mary Wright Alsop crafted a distinct collection of needlework pieces during the 18th and 19th centuries. Daughter of a wealthy farmer, Mary went to school in upscale Newport, Rhode Island, where she learned the skill. Some of her surviving pieces include chair covers, canvas work pictures, pocketbooks, and needle cases.

This kit is adapted from Mary Alsop's original Queen Stitch pocketbook from 1774, which is now part of the Winterthur collection.

H. F. du Pont loved textiles for their colors, patterns, and textures. From quilts to gowns, samplers to bed hangings, Winterthur’s collection includes some of the finest textiles made or used in America. Since du Pont’s death in 1969, the collection has continued to grow, and now includes about 20,000 objects.
