Embroidery, no less than Art, Architecture, Costume or Silversmithing reflects or expresses the spirit of an age. No period or era can be rigidly dated, each period or phase grows out of the last and into the next thus forging and perpetuating the links of tradition and building a rich heritage. Much of the work here, for example the various counted thread techniques, draws on many traditions whilst other pieces reflect more contemporary and innovative approaches.
