The story of Anna Marie Stauss
“As a young girl I lived in a small fishing village on the island of Terceira, in the Azores. My mother had very few opportunities to make money because culturally she was expected to stay home and provide free labor to support the family. Her only source of income was embroidery. There was someone in the village that would provide the local ladies with embroidery materials, training and patterns.”
