SA-39 Deerfield Embroidery
Skill level: Some experience in crewelwork
Deerfield embroidery is a form of crewelwork which developed in the Deerfield area of Massachusetts in the United States.
In the late 19th century, Margaret Whiting and Ellen Miller discovered some old moth-eaten pieces of crewel embroidery, which they wanted to copy, thereby preserving the designs for posterity. The designs were simpler than the traditional Jacobean designs and the stitches used had most of the thread on the surface of the work, thereby using less thread. Students may work the design in the traditional blue or they may use colours of their own choice.
