A research visit to Manchester
The final touch to the show - the background on embroidery. And again, we are lucky. Through contacts at the V&A we have been put in touch with Anne Morrell, an expert on embroidery on the Asian subcontinent. At home in Manchester, she very kindly shows me her fabulous collection and talks through the background to the traditional embroidery, loaned by the women, that we are going to display. Indispensable background that really strengthens the project.
