Join Jenny Garwood of the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts (MESDA) as she addresses the topic in “Expressions of Freedom in Southern Needlework Samplers”. Garwood will explore the patriotic fervor that was revealed through needlework from the 18th and 19th-century South and the stories of the girls who stitched them. Garwood is the manager of Museum Education and Adjunct Curator of Textiles at MESDA in Winston-Salem. A graduate of UNC-Greensboro, she has been with MESDA since 2007, where her focus of research and study has been with the textile collection. Feel free to bring a sample(r) of your work to share!
