Charleston Museum * Low Country Embroidery * Until 13 January 2013

Charleston Museum presents an original exhibition - Lowcountry Embroidery - until 13 January 2013 in its Historic Textiles Gallery. The Charleston Museum's collection of Charleston-made schoolgirl samplers is unrivaled and these delightful embroidered treasures will be the main focus of this exhibit.

The Museum states: In the 18th and 19th centuries, almost every young girl learned to sew. The sampler was probably a girl's first achievement, proof of this important knowledge, and then most likely she would go on to show off her talents through decorative embroideries. Displayed in the study drawer section of the gallery, Lowcountry Embroidery will also include appliqué and needlepoint to showcase the finer needlework achieved by women and skilled girls.
