In my meanderings this morning I found these two pieces. The first in a link from Sue Lawty on the conservation of an egyptian tunic , there is a short video here. The second is on Thistle Threads The Embroiderers Story where you can follow the making of this stunning replica of a 17th century jacket.
It has taken three years!
I was lucky enough to visit the Plimoth Plantation when we were in America.It is an fascinating replica of one of the first settlements, the role players were excellent.
