Embroidery - Chicken Scratch TSC Adult learning Week 2016
Amish embroidery is a technique that is believed to originate in the United States, becoming largely popular between the 1930's-1950's - hence the term "depression lace". It was used as a way of creating a more expensive, lace-like appearance to cheaper gingham fabric that was more readily available to women during this period. It is characterized by three main types of hand-embroidery stitches: running stitch, cross-stitch and double cross-stitch.
