Appalachian Piecework Preserves Old Textile Crafts
“I just love the old textiles,” Laurie Gundersen of Appalachian Piecework says. Her love is obvious. Located at the Train Station in downtown Staunton, every part of Gundersen’s shop is a piece of local Shenandoah Valley history told through her skilled hands.
That’s why when we have guests here at the Inn at Old Virginia who are particularly interested in history, we tell them they have to go to Laurie’s shop!
There they will find items that were once a part of everyday 19th-century life. The difference?
