Before the Mayflower landed in 1620, civilizations across North America created art: needlework, stitching, weaving, textiles, ceremonial costumes, needle art, jewelry... Please note that my list is not extensive. I included a few preliminary resources to learn more about needle art and needlework in the Americas. The bottom of this post includes some book recommendations including historical non fiction, art, and textile books. You can watch my Flosstube episode here.
