The Museum of Contemporary Crafts held the exhibit "Stitching" September 23 through November 6, 1967 in New York, New York. "Stitching" was divided into three sections: historical examples of embroidery; contemporary work in embroidery done by children in Peru, Sweden, and the United States; and last the stitchery of international contemporary artists. They wished to contrast historical with contemporary examples in illustrating the scope of the art of embroidery. This is an installation view. Here shown in the center is Surcoat.
