The Worshipful Company of Broderers put on an excellent open exhibition at the Bankside Gallery in London which was very well attended. A pity it was only for six days.
As the title suggests the exhibits were all embroidered either by hand or machine. All exquisitely executed and some with contemporary designs. All wall hung. I would like to have seen some embroidered 3D objects or sculptures on plinths which would have been a real eye opener for those unfamiliar with embroidery.
The Worshipful Company of Broderers has been in existence since medieval times to regulate the standard of embroidery. The first two ladies to be accepted as liverymen were Linda Palmer and Elizabeth Elvin in March 2019.
I do hope their hard work is appreciated and it will not be too long before they invite everyone to submit work for another exhibition.
