"…delightful, thoughtful, well documented embroidery show at the Saco Museum. I almost missed the contemporary work upstairs had it not been for my friend calling down for me. The upstairs work is like the icing on the cupcake! Jiil Snyder-Wallace has two pieces there. i loved the flat iron one especially."
