Embroidery

I edit Wikipedia because I like improving the world's knowledge about things I'm interested in. I'm also a Pinterest user, since I enjoy learning about art here (printmaking, ceramics, textiles, and more). I made this board from Wikipedia's wealth of embroidery images in the public domain, since I like decorative arts, the history of domestic work, and free culture. These are a few samples from the history of needlework around the world.
