The Needlework of Aging Women

This book --which will come out next January-- is about quilters and sampler makers over forty in American from 1820-1860.

Now if someone will only realize that there is more needle art being made now than ever before!

(Thanks for the tip, Tara!)

By the way, if you know the author you might want to drop a hint that their title is offensive to those of us middle-aged and above, but I expect that between 1820 and 1860 anyone over forty was considered bordering on ancient.  Which just goes to show one's modern day prejudices have no place in historical research.
