She told of how applique was first known in 1980 b.c. and an example is located in a museum in Cairo, Egypt.
Applique really became popular in the 15th century and India started making the cotton fabric known as "chintz".
Broderie Perse technique was introduced - cutting around the piece of
fabric and appliqueing it on another piece of fabric.
The "Tree of Life" pattern became popular in England in the 1600's.
Modern day broderie perse used on her projects.
