Whaling City Handcrafts
While we were up in Massachusetts in October, we checked out the New Bedford Whaling Museum. Some really interesting exhibits and the most insane collection of scrimshaw, but imagine my surprise when we came across a special exhibit on textile history. Pictures include a close-up of an antique crazy quilt, an antique needlework sampler, and a sewing notion box made with inlaid whale ivory.
