Stitching exhibition

Hello beautiful stitchers

Today I want to share an experience I had in last days here in Mexico city in the museum Franz Mayer.

I had the oportunity to visit an exhibition of embroidery labours of mexican girls and womans in XIX and half XX centuries.

This is the poster of the exposition

The meaning of the words stitched:
"This embroidery was made by Maria de Jesus Martinez in the Convent of the new instruction  in San juan de Dios, it concludes before age 6 "
Can you imagine a little little girl of 5 years almost 6 stitching in linen with silk??  Amazing!

This is the complete project of this little girl:

Other embroideries in the exhibition:

Almost all the embroideries were made in linen and threads of silk in years 1800 to 1910

It was a beautiful experience

I just want to share this special moment with all of you

Have a great day

Happy Stitching :)
