arts and crafts is located on Canal St., New Smyrna,

opposite*the Chamber of Commeerce. It is known as the
Women's Work Center. This center has existed since the

first governmental work set-up. It has functioned under

FERA, CWA, Red Cross, and IPA. The creations of the

group of women participating in this project have the

distinction of being utilitarian as well as artistic.

In the first rank of the productions of

the Center are the group of tapestries executed under

the direction of Mrs. Cora Wilson, supervisor. Three of

the 6 panels were designed by Mrs. Georgia Osborne and

the remaining ones by Miss Dorothy Morton. Mrs. zelia

Sweett, a descendant of one of. the settlers of The New

Smyrna of the last century, functioned as historical ad-

visor* -

Each panel is 31" x 42" and required 50

shades of yarn, combined in a great number of embroidery

stitches, anhoy of them unique. The completion of each

panel consumed about 3 months time and, -upon completion"

of all 6, it was-found that th Average cost was $100.00

Ponce de Leon panel 1513,

Depicts the first contact of the Spanish ex-

plorers with the aborigines of Florida, The background is

indicative cf the scenery greeting the newcomers. The moon

and stars of the upper corners and the wavy motif of the

border is syabolio of the duration of the sea-voyage whila-

the lower corner views of the sun symbolize the direction

pursued by the voyagers, namely east to west,


Indian panel 1565.

Comprises 8 features of Le Moines drawings.

While the arrangement is original, the figures are careful

repvoduotions of Le Moine's characterizations, The border

reproduces a design found on a pottery fragment unearthed

in a Florida burial mound.


Mission of Atocuimi 1698.

The arrangement of the Mission walls, the

figures of the Monks and Indians, evidence the close rze-

Seminole Wars 1835
picturizes the burning of the plantations

that were developed under Spanish grants-and early Ameri-

of this panel are adaptions from a picture of Osceola, the

Seminole leader, and an Indian shirt presented to a Mr.

Sams by one of the Seminoles several years ago. Also,
designs from pottery shards of the Indian mounds play a

role in the development of the border.

War of the States 1863
Artistically bordered by design of a

patriotic natu~ e, denoting the unity of the North and the

South, this pahel portrays the only Civil war engagement
