“There are magical things here. The array of printed swatches of fabric might be the least beguiling element of a rich process — which is saying a lot, because they’re captivating. The group’s instrument of choice was the linocut block, each of them carved meticulously by hand.”

-Murray Whyte.

Whyte, Murray. (2022, Nov. 9). Of garments and Gloucester: celebrating the Folly Cove designers. Boston Globe.
Over decades, the women’s collective built a national following for their hand-printed fabrics and wares. In a new exhibition, the Cape Ann Museum looks at the process and precision that guided their handiwork.
