Virginia Lee Burton
From a placemat designed by Virginia Lee Burton. 
Note the use of her married name 'Demetrios'.
Burton (right) and her co-designers showing
how the block-printing was done with no
machinery. Later, Burton acquired
a flat-bed press. Notice how
their clothing is embellished
with the block-prints.

There were 43 different designers.
After Burton's death in 1968, the group
decided not to sell any more of the Folly
Cove designs and donated their sample books
and designs to the Cape Ann Historical
Association.
