Cross-stitch is one of the oldest forms of embroidery and was used by the ancient Egyptians and Phrygians. In the 1700s, cross-stitch, embroidery, and other needlework were taught at girls’ schools in America. Old Salem Museums & Gardens and the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts (MESDA) are home to an exceptional collection of Southern needlework that spans seven states.
