American Needlework presents an historical outline of decorative stitch forms as expressed in embroidery in various techniques worked by American women. It is both a history and a practical handbook of the entire subject.
Examples have been selected from each period of the country's development from the late seventeenth century, up to and including work of the twentieth century. The uses to which embroidery was applied reflect the taste, manners, and customs of the changing cycles of the American scene. The book is illustrated with 6 full colour illustrations and nearly 400 halftones.
