I am proud to show you the new book that goes with the exhibition that is now traveling the UK.

The Exibition dates are:

Fashion and Embroidery, The Showground, Harrogate 5th-7th October 2007.

Creative Stitches, Cardiff Arena 2nd-4th November 2007.

Creative Stitches, Brighton Centre 8th-10th February 2008.

Creative Stitches, SECC, Glasgow 6th-9th March 2008.

Sewing for Pleasure, NEC Birmingham 13th-16th March 2008.

For three years now, the NNA has been documenting the textiles of the WI. Some of the items have been given to the organization, because unfortunately the groups have closed. The book shows many different works of art made by the members of the WI, or commissioned by them. So if you can’t make it to the exhibition, all the works are included in the book. (Though I’ve seen the exhibition and there is something about seeing these beautiful works up close and in person.)

The book is available at the exhibitions or by post direct from the NNA. The cost is £14.99 plus £2.90 p&p. Cheques for £17.89, made out to the National Needlework Archive, should be sent to:

Boldre House
