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!
