Essex Member, Kirsten Yeates, held a day at her house last Friday to look at her collection of Danish textiles - some of museum quality and all brought in charity shops in her homeland. She told as that charity shops in Denmark are like they used to be here, a good rummage unearths wonderful, if not valuable, treasures not a worn Primark teeshirt! She gave us some history and then we were able to rummage through her wonderful collection of textiles, books and information.
She had promised us a lunch and surprised us all with snapps and a three course smorgasboard - it was incredibly generous and an interesting and fun day out.
Thank you so much Kirsten from all of us.
