I received an e-mail from the Director of Marketing at the Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme, Connecticut asking to help spread the word about their fall exhibition titled "With Needle and Brush: Schoolgirl Embroidery from the Connecticut River Valley." The exhibition will be held from October 2, 2010 through January 30, 2011.
This exhibition of approximately sixty embroideries, watercolor sketches, and portraits will draw extensively on works from private collections, many never before shown publicly.
