Redwork: A Textile Tradition in America
The exhibit explores the history and art of Redwork, a needlework technique that was especially popular in the United States between the 1880s and the 1920s. Redwork is a style of decorative needlework that consists of embroidering the outline of designs onto a white or off-white backgroung with a contrasting color of thread. Red thread is typically used in this style because the red color contrasts well against a light background.
