Dear Jennifer,

Some of Dorian Gray's obsessions are embroideries, and Oscar Wilde also wrote a wonderfully detailed (if long) review of Ernest Lefebure's Embroidery and Lace (which can be read in its entirety on Google Books<http://books.google.com/books?id=cMUVAAAAYAAJ&dq=wilde%20reviews&pg=PA327#v=onepage&q&f=false>).

Subject: [Msa-discuss] Embroidery in Modernist Works

Dear All,

I'm trying to work through an idea about embroidery and sewing in the works of modernist writers.  I honestly don't know if this is a broad question or not, but does anyone know of works that include references to or scenes of embroidery and sewing?

Thanks very much,
