Often called Mississippi's Grandma Moses of stitchery, Ethel Wright Mohamed, was born in  1906 and died in 1992. She used beautiful and intricate stitches to tell the stories of her family's life on fabric. Through this unique and beautiful "painting with thread" she has given us a view into the history of the Mississippi Delta's way of life. She called her work "memory pictures". This history includes her marriage, eight children,  and numerous scenes of family  memories that they all shared. She included their beloved housekeeper, Mittie, who helped raise the children and care for the family. Her stitchery has achieved international acclaim.
