Spring 1955 Issue of Embroidery * Give Away Free Draw

It would be selfish to keep this treasure to myself - so we shall have a draw for it. It is a vintage Embroidery Journal produced by the Embroiderers' Guild and it features an article on the Guild's needlework collection, such as the beautiful coif you can see here.
Just click on any of the images for a larger picture.
One total revelation is to be found in the list of patrons and officers of the guild - it reads like Debretts! There are princesses, duchesses, viscountesses, knights, baronesses, earls, honourables, countesses and many wives of knights. The chairman (sic) for the North West Branch is Rache Kay-Shuttleworth. Who is the patron of your guild?
To enter the draw, just click on the flying angel below. We'll announce a winner next Monday 2 April.
