Visit to The Royal School Of Needlework

A number of members recently visited the RSN at Hampton Court and enjoyed a fascinating day out. Here are a few photographs and a brief report of proceedings to give those of us who didn’t go a taste of what we missed!

“The pieces we were shown by our two guides had a garden theme. We saw three trainee teachers at work on embroideries. We saw a book of embroidered items collected by a lady through her lifetime and a final piece by a recent student. One girl was connecting Magna Carta pieces together, one of which could have been Chris’s(ED: One of our very talented members was selected to contribute to the Magna Carta exhibition embroidery, a top secret assignment at present, watch this space!)

We also had a brief look round parts of the gardens on our own. It was a very pleasant day. Thanks to Jill for organising it. “
