A New Project

As I am very interested in textiles, I thought I would embark on a project exploring textiles and needlework in Austen’s novels and her world.

I have many embroidery history books, Austen’s novels and letters, plus Austen biographies and regency histories to which I can refer.

This is a long term project – I am going to start by reading this book (I might even attempt some of the projects)
