Pickering House Lecture Series: Needlework at the Pickering House

 

Among the treasures of the Pickering House collection are examples of needlework from the 18th and early 19th centuries. These embroideries reveal important aspects of the lives of women in early New England including their education, roles in society, their knowledge of the visual arts, and expressions of family identity and heritage. Paula Richter will discuss needlework associated with members of the Pickering family including samplers, pastoral canvas-work pictures, and an embroidered coat of arms and compare them with other examples from local and regional collections.
