Captain Cook Waistcoat Project

This project grew out of an email exchange with Sophie Forgan, Curator of the Captain Cook Memorial Museum in Whitby. We had been considering ideas for developing my needlework post-retirement, and I mentioned the idea of making myself suitable period costumes and sitting in museums and stately homes doing period needlework. I love both historical costumes and traditional hand embroidery techniques, so it fitted well with my interests. That Sophie thought it was a good idea was a great encouragement!
