The Maidstone Jacket - 27th August 2009

We love early embroidered jackets and on Thursday 27th August (next Thursday)there will be the chance to see the beautiful Maidstone Jacket with its wonderful all over design of red peascods at an evening workshop at Maidstone Museum, Kent between 16.30 and 20.30. The speaker will be Mary Brooks author of English Embroidery and she will be talking on early embroidery. This will be followed by a hands-on workshop. Just 3 places remaining. You can book your place by calling Samantha Edwards on 01622 602838.


  1. Wow! Is it really embroidered??! Great idea but who can wear an embroidered cloth? Amazing! :)

  2. Why? Please tell me why this is being held a week and a half before I could come and see it? Seriously, having worked on the reproduction of an embroidered jacket started by Plimoth Plantation and having seen a beautiful reproduction similar to this jacket, I would definitely recommend anyone go see this if they can. Two weeks later and I would be there for certain!
