AB: Fenelly – Textiles in New England

(This is an entry in the Annotated Bibliography.)

Fenelly, Catherine. Textiles in New England, 1790-1840. Old Sturbridge Village Booklet Series. Sturbridge, Massachusetts: Old Sturbridge Village Inc., 1961.

This little book is a fairly useful resource, placing textiles in their regional and temporal context very effectively. It particularly focuses on home-made and otherwise ordinary objects and materials. It is not instructional but it does have helpful photographs that give some construction information. The photographs and images are monochrome and generally small, but well printed. Additionally, higher quality images of the same items may be available on the Old Sturbridge Village website. There is no bibliography, but there is a list of available booklets in the series.
