Plain & Fancy: American Women and Their Needlework, 1650-1850

Written by Susan Swan

Plain and Fancy is a thorough and thoughtful survey of two hundred years of American needlework - from the second half of the seventeenth century into the Victorian era.

More than a catalog of embroidery forms, the text explores the social history of the women who created this wonderful needlework, which was their primary and most acceptable creative outlet.
