Winterthur Symposium Registration Opens

The next textile symposium at Winterthur Museum is open for registration today, June 19th.

If you are interested in textile history or reproduction embroidery, this is for you.  Of course this 17th Century casket trifle caught my eye as I'm a sucker for historic technique and unusual threads that have been revived in limited runs.

Hope some of you are able to go!

  1. Were you aware that Betty Ring died recently (beginning of June)? It's such a shame for the needlework community. I posted her obit if you are interested.
