Deerfield Embroidery - Local History

Deerfield Embroidery - Local History
Our next butterfly in the Butterflies of the World series doesn’t come from an exotic locale – instead it hails from the sleepy little town of Deerfield, Massachusetts, about an hour away from our studio. Deerfield embroidery is a strange mix – at once severe and exuberant, sturdily made and a little whimsical, just like the women who developed Deerfield embroidery. Picking though the influences in it is a study in local history itself.
