Georgiana Brown Harbeson (1894-1980) revolutionized the world of needlework in the late 1920s and 1930s! She shared her innovative techniques with a broad audience through two seminal books and numerous articles. Her designs graced the covers of prestigious women's magazines like Vogue, Woman's Home Companion, and Ladies Home Journal. Her crewel and needlepoint embroidery approach involved creating watercolor sketches, which she then translated into intricate patterns applied to fabric using a rich palette of wool. Introduced to embroidery at seven by a nun in Quebec, she then studied painting in school. She combined her talents to become a sought-after artist commissioned by esteemed institutions. Her contributions to the world of needlework earned her recognition from institutions like the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Beyond her work in needlework, Harbeson also left her mark on theater and ballet, designing costumes and stage sets. Her legacy endures as she elevated stitchery to the status of fine art!
