The Beautiful Stitch: Textile Treasures of the Embroiderers Guild

Bucks County Museum
Church Street,
Aylesbury, United Kingdom
Jul 01, 2017 To Oct 28, 2017

Detail: 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!
