The Met Goes Pinterest

Tricia Nguyen of Thistle Threads just mentioned a new initiative of the Metropolitan Museum to put digital information and photographs from their collections on Pinterest for all to see and study.
Sadly, you will have to have a Pinterest account to see the photographs but each week the Met textile conservators plan to add a new board with many photos of one piece.  Right now the items are stumpwork and embroidery but this is an invaluable resource for those interested in historical embroidery and techniques.

The interest level is important, though.  The Met won't keep posting if those interested don't follow the board and look at what they are making available online.
