This expert on early embroidery and author of Samplers A to Z has curated innovative exhibitions at the MFA that range from the glamour of Hollywood gowns to the everyday needlework of colonial girls. Her latest obsession is researching quilts for a new exhibition to commemorate the MFA’s 150th anniversary in 2020.
