Sunday stitching …

January 2, 2022

During my studies I was lucky to get a bursary from the Textile Society that allowed me to buy a new mobile phone, with a Dragon Frame tether and software for my laptop that enabled me to make improved stop motion films.  A little later I attended a Textile Society Vintage fabric event at Chelsea Town Hill where I bought some scraps of lace and other beautiful elderly fabrics to make costumes for my ‘dolls and an antique Kantha bedspread.  It may be as much as 100 years old and has some signs of wear.  I have learned kantha embroidery and while my feeble attempts will not match the original stitch work and later repairs I am enjoying my endeavours to prolong its life a bit more.
