Bringing History to Life with Embroidery Project
Posted on 04/26/2017
Salisbury University student intern, Veronica Turley, brought history to life in Melissa Vit's 5th grade classroom at Berlin Intermediate School through a lesson involving embroidery techniques of the 18th and 19th century.

Students were taught how to embroider their names or initials to demonstrate their understanding of how women recorded stories of their lives during the era of the American Revolution through the art of samplers.
