International Women’s Day

In celebration of International Women’s Day today, I read some old and new blogs about various forms of needlework.  I found something new and old about the history of quilting, but was most captivated by the Dutch history of the resistance movement during WWII and the creation of the patchwork skirts.  Hope you enjoy!
