A Home Ec Project Gone Awry

Right edge of Vantage Pint
How often is there wonder right in our own neighborhood that we almost MISS!!

I almost missed seeing this fantastic textile work, Vantage Point by Maggy Rozycki Hiltner, at our very own Lawrence Arts Center. Alert stringer Georgann Eglinski let me know about this when she saw it yesterday. I was there this morning and learned the piece will be on display at the Lawrence Arts Center until July 23.

Go see this! It is described as hand-stitched cotton, found embroidery made in 2015. It measures 46" x 864". Yes, that is 46" x 72 FEET! I am just agog at the wonder of Maggy's work and very sad I missed her talk in May.

The rest of Vantage Point

Below is a photo of Maggy's complete description of this work, along with an artist statement. This work is hand-stitched and incorporates household goods and the story of the area where Maggy grew up in Pottstown, PA. I will let her work and her words speak for themselves. I took a lot of detail shots and will post them in the next few days.

In the meantime, enjoy! And if you can get to Lawrence this week, be sure to see this.

One detail shot for you today, more soon:


  1. Thanks! I'll head there tomorrow. Kathe

  3. Headed there in the morning! Thanks Deb!

  4. WOW! Truly wonderful. Thanks for showing it to us. I love the found embroidery.
