A Stitch in Time Exhibition


  • Art By Katy Gallery 22 Weed Field Road Stonington, ME, 04681 United States (map)

You are invited to view "A Stitch in Time Exhibition", a unique folk art collection of vintage embroidered samplers crafted by unknown stitch artists circa 1930s-1970s. A needlework sampler is a piece of embroidery or cross-stitching produced as a 'specimen of achievement', demonstration or a test of skill in needlework. It often includes the alphabet, figures, motifs, decorative borders and sometimes the name of the person who embroidered it and the date. These charming textiles in their original vintage frames are believed to be the work of Maine island women from Deer Isle and the region.

Gallery is open Noon-4PM or when you see Open Flag out or by Chance or Appointment. 367-6369.
