Frances Robinson created an original art form of making tapestries from cotton thread, using a sewing machine. This work, depicting woodland objects, also uses some appliqués. The largest piece took one year to complete and the sunflower was the most difficult. Robinson earned degrees from Montana State University and Kent State University. She taught art at Buchtel High School and was head of its Art Department. Locally, her work is displayed at Akron General Medical Center and First Energy's corporate offices; she also exhibited at the New York Museum of Contemporary Crafts.
