Embroidery and other web-links
I thought it might be useful to start a list of links to useful websites etc! These are sites for suppliers that I use or sites I think readers might find useful. If you find any others you think readers might like, please add a comment!
The Local Framers I use: David and Christine Knight at Images Framing, 6 Red Lion Court, Anlaby 01482 657535
The Silk Mill: Supplier for the Silk embroidery threads I use. Wonderful range of 600 colours, with more to come soon!
Benton and Johnson: manufacturers of Goldwork threads of all kinds, including passing thread.
Here's an interesting one: the Great Lady's Magazine Stitch-off! Patterns from the Lady's Magazine from 1796, to try out for your own embroidery.
Here's the blog post by Jennie Batchelor: https://blogs.kent.ac.uk/ladys-magazine/
