Boston Globe: Of garments and Gloucester- celebrating the Folly Cove Designers

November 9, 2022

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.

This fall, the Cape Ann Museum in Gloucester opened a tribute exhibition to the group called "Designed and Hand-Blocked by the Folly Cove Designers." The collective always occupies a small corner of the museum, with a selection of their bright-patterned textiles on permanent display. The new exhibition offers a wider celebration of their whimsical, aethetically rigorous work.
