Delaware Discoveries: Girlhood Embroidery, 1750–1850


With more than 250 photographs, Delaware Discoveries examins sampler styles unique to a particular area, teacher, or school, including schools out of state. Teachers such as Deborah Hicks Mundall, who began her teaching career in New Castle and later operated a school in Philadelphia, and Susanna Pusey Harvey, a Pennsylvania teacher who relocated to the Wilmington area, are included here, as are Mrs. Bowers and Mrs. Thomspon, who taught in Lewes.

The stitchers' stories, their families, and the impact they had on Delaware history and society are a major focus of this book.
