The following are just some of the museums/great houses that have renown collections of embroideries, all with an exhibit of selected textiles open to the public. It is sometimes possible to prearrange a visit to the textile's storage department for more intense study; it is most important to provide a specific abbreviated list of what type of needlework you wish to study. A photograph can never take the place of the actual embroidery - many are so awesome they take your breathe away.
Having a website I am now able to share my image and slide collection of needlework history with the internet audience. This presentation will be produced in stages over the next few years. All publications will be offered in the PDF format to be viewed by Adobe Acrobat Reader (see below*). You can print all the information, this for your personal use only. Bookmark this page and check back periodically to see what has been added, for these free internet publications will be written in stages.
* After viewing a PDF file in Adobe Reader, close the program (the "X" in the upper right corner of Adobe Reader's window) and you will be returned to this website.
