“I My Needle Ply With Skill”: Maine Schoolgirl Needlework of the Federal Era

An exhibition, book, and public programs produced by the Dyer Library and Saco Museum, January 2013. DLSM Executive Director Leslie Rounds was the mastermind, curator, and author; I helped as  grantwriter and editor for the book.  This book and exhibition were a major contribution to the scholarship of this often-overlooked period of female artistic activity.
