Historic Needlework Guild 412-635-8187 for chapter information
Since the earliest of times, women have done needlework as an integral part of their life. More than the simple decorative applications for which we use it today, needlework was traditionally used as a method of marking property, to embellish clothing, and as a form of creative expression. Many techniques were used, some of which have not been duplicated in modern times.
