Embroidery frame


Title
Embroidery frame
Description
This wooden frame was used to hold fabric for embroidery work. Needle arts were an important part of education for elite girls, such as Governor David Stone's daughters. However, fine embroidery was practiced by women of all ages in plantation households. It was one way that women were able to put their personal expression on everyday items. A frame could hold the ground for a needlework picture, sampler, or a chair cover. The tapped ends on the frame make it adjustable. Date approximated.
