Relics in Situ

Let History Be Your Guide

We research early modern needlework to learn about the lives of women and how they contributed to their world.

Through lectures and hands-on work shops, we share this information with other historical professionals, needlework enthusiasts, and anyone else interested in culture and craft of the early modern period.
