Yesterday after our monthly business meeting, our Chapter members shared their Antique Needlework items. Our members brought a variety of items to share - from quilts, to needlework accessories, to antique handmade baskets to antique samplers. The collection was very diverse. Each member shared their item and gave a brief background on how it was acquired. It was wonderful to hear of the personal connections and stories behind each antique. Some were of friends, other of family - all was interesting to hear. A full set of the photos can be seen here in our Flickr album.
