Cross stitched table runner with Russian motto made by a Jewish immigrant

Object | Accession Number: 2012.72.3

Table runner with a cross stitched floral design and inscription made by Edna (Yetta) Kwasznik Eckstein, who immigrated to the United States with her young son from Ratno, Russia (Ratne, Ukraine) in 1912. They joined her husband, Sam, who had left Ratno in 1908 and settled in Denver, Colorado. The table runner, embroidered with her American name and a proverb in old fashioned Carpatho-Rusyn, may have been brought with her, but it is likely that it was made in the US.
