New year, new post about embroidery. My latest piece, “Stitching History: Using Embroidery to Examine the Past” can be found over at ActiveHistory.ca. This post looks at embroidery samplers as a way to explore personal and social historical narratives.
My most recent post, “Canadian Girls in Training: 100 Years With A Purpose” can be seen over at Active History. I wrote this post after attending a local 100th anniversary celebration of CGIT and learning about the local impact of the organization. The post also looks at the history of CGIT across Canada and the movement’s links to feminism and changing approaches to education.
