Martha Edlin (1660-1725) Following the usual development of needlework skills in a young educated girl in the mid-17th century, Martha embroidered a sampler in coloured silks at the age of eight, and a more complicated piece in whitework and cutwork at nine. By 1671, her eleventh year, she had embroidered the panels of an elaborate casket, and two years later this beadwork jewellery case.
