Nantucket’s tradition in the needle arts has a strong history. Needlework was part of a young girl’s education and not just a hobby. Later needlework and embroidery provided employment for Nantucket Women. Several businesses began as a result and the evolution birthed new opportunities. Nantucket’s leaders in textile and needle arts, all played roles in establishing needlework on Nantucket for the modern era. The Nantucket Needlery, The Nantucket Cloth Company, The Nantucket Looms, as well as Erica Wilson are a few of the names recognized today in this movement.
Workshops range in technique and ability that challenge the seasoned as well as train the beginner, and establish a love for a lifelong craft.
