This is the third edition of this book which was initially published in 1986 and which seeks to analyse the “reciprocal relationship between women and embroidery”.
According to the author, “embroidery brought stitchery out from the private world of female domesticity into the public eye thus fostering the emergence of today’s dynamic and expanding crafts movement”.
