Stitches in Time - Bankfield Museum, Halifax, West Yorkshire

This exhibition is unmissable!
There are 30 wonderful exhibits of 17th century slips, rococo stitch fragments, a huswif with a mirror, a pocket book, shoes, early embroidered apron, gentleman's embroidered jacket, pockets and a wonderful stitched picture. Here are just two images shown to you with the museum's consent - one of the slips and the other a detail of a stitched picture. More to follow. There will also be a download description of the museum and this exhibition in the coming days.
