Never before seen textiles left at the Foundling Hospital in the mid 18th century with the children will be on display at the London Foundling Museum until 6 March 2011. Sixty billets showing a wide variety of textiles including lace, embroidery, patchwork, weaving, and of course all dyed naturally.
Not only but also - a display of ribbons, courtesy of VV Rouleaux decorating the stair well and building. Exhibition catalogue also well worth obtaining.
If you are interested in historic needlework this is an exhibition not to be missed. It is hoped that an ERTF visit/event will be arranged in the new year - further details will follow once arranged.
