World textiles.

Viv and Sally are well known for their illustrated talks about the Miao.Several of us had gone along to World Textile day in Saltford a few Saturdays ago. This prompted a showing of some of the collection they still have.

Viv brought out this thread keeper.It is hand made in paper and decorated by the needleworker.

It has an ingenious folding box system.The threads and sewing notions can then be kept safe.

It folds quite neatly into a book shape.

There were other items but they were put away before they could be photographed.

Sally,meanwhile is continuing her river journey.

These will be shown in Nature in Art next Easter.
