The Beautiful Stitch: Textile Treasures of the Embroiderers Guild @ Bucks County Museum | England | United Kingdom

The Embroiderers’ Guild, now settled into its new home at Bucks County Museum, owns a nationally important collection of costume and textiles from around the world.
Highlights from this unique and inspiring collection will form the basis of a major exhibition at the County Museum in Aylesbury through the summer of 2017.
Opening on 1 July to 28 October, the exhibition will focus on the diverse and ever-changing nature of embroidery across time and place, and will include some of the finest pieces from the Guild’s stunning collections of historical and contemporary embroidery: from Chinese shoes to American Indian gloves, from 18th century whitework to 21st century artwork, and from miniature stitches to the world’s longest embroidery!
Entry to the exhibition is free. For opening times and more information see www.buckscountymuseum.org or phone 01296 331441.
