How I missed this show I dont know, but thanks goes out to Linda Schiffer, of Fiber and Pulp who dropped me an email to let me know about it.
I was able to see this exhibit last spring. We stopped on kind of a whim while passing thorugh the area. It was a trip well worth the extra night on the road! Seeing these garments in person was wonderful–I could have spent days there.
Ooo, my – that looks fabulous!
Thank you for the link Sharon. What a wonderful exhibition. I have sent a quick email and link to my sister with a warning not to look if she’s in a hurry. This is one to keep going back to.
Thank you for the link..it is wonderful..
In one of the dress they mention the name Gobelin stitch. Will you please tell us what exactly is gobelin stitch. Thank you.
In the Napoleonic era, a soldier or officer was truly proud of himself is he was "mentioned in a dispatch" to the commander for some worthy effort. I feel as if I had been ‘mentioned in a dispatch’ by you, Sharon. (blush!) How nice.
Thank you Sharon and Linda for passing this link on. What a fantastic resource – more than one cup of coffee’s worth! Sharon, there is a bit of discussion on the HEN network about the revival of embroidered clothing.
