Here are two more pieces from the Frayed exhibition currently on at the Time and Tide Museum in Great Yarmouth (see my last post for links). Again I have included pictures of the information boards. I went to the exhibition with my friend Ros and she is trying to arrange a visit to the museum for Norfolk quilters which will include a talk by the exhibition curator, Ruth Battersby Tooke.
Ros also forwarded a pdf from the V&A museum about the Elizabeth Parker sampler (previous post) which you can read here: sampler
and reminded me about the exhibition blog which will continue to be updated: blog
The exhibit which affected me the most were the Lorina Bulwer embroidered letters. I have spent several sleepless nights composing and "stitching" letters and am inspired, as several others have been, including textile artist, Sara Impey:
to embroider a letter. Fortunately, my subjects would not be as distressing as Lorina's.
