ABSTRACT
This article presents an interview with Mary Schoeser, an author of numerous books on textiles. When asked about what interests her in the contemporary textiles in both U.S. and Great Britain, she explains that it is the vitality of the field in the U.S. and Great Britain that is striking. She explains that embroidery has been the major source of creative direction for more than a century in Great Britain. It was the first means by which women could exhibit their work in public. Lastly, she stresses that creative persons find a way to do what they need to do, in much that same way around the world.
