Wheeler, Candace: The Development of Embroidery in America, v.1, 29 June 2008
Candace Wheeler (1827 - 1923) was one of America's first woman interior and textile designers, credited with helping open the field of interior design to women. Associated with the Colonial Revival, Aesthetic Movement, and the Arts and Crafts Movement throughout her long career, Wheeler was considered a national authority on home decoration. Wheeler was a member of the Associated Artists, along with Louis Comfort Tiffany. She founded the Society of Decorative Art in New York City (1877), and created similar artistic societies across the country. Wheeler is also noted for designing the interior of the Women's Building at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago.This publication from 1921 has many illustrations. Personally, I wouldn't know my nippers from my buckram but I thought someone might enjoy this ebook. It's crewel work but somebody had to do it.

Cute pun at the end -- thank you for working on books which you might not even have any interest in but which are great for increasing the breadth and depth of offerings for the Sony Reader!
