‘Folk Art Needlepoint’ offers twenty projects and variations, from pillows and paperweights to a door stop and scissors case, that celebrate the best of American folk art. Ruth Peltason has selected twenty objects from the American Folk Art Museum in New York. This collaboration results in such appealing projects as a multicolored belt taken from an 1890s log cabin quilt or a tote bag designed with hearts and hands based on love tokens cut in paper made in the mid-nineteenth century. Along with photographs of the pieces in room settings, Ruth Peltason provides notes on the motifs and museum pieces that have inspired her as well as charming asides about decorating with a needlepoint cushions, picture frames, or even curtain tiebacks. Karyn Gerhard, a talented needleworker, charted the patterns and stitched all the projects in the book, and the American Folk Art Museum supplied commentary on the motifs and original artworks.
