In 2020 I received a grant from my local arts council to create a series of tea cozies featuring embroidered portraits of local and regional NY suffragists to celebrate the centennial anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution.
The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.
Included in this project are four members of the Easton Political Equality Club: Lucy P. Allen, Emma Skiff Becker, Lydia Dwelle Hoag, and Chloe Peckham Sisson. Click on the images to learn more!
