Event date: 4 October 2014, 11am–4pm
The Big Stitch returns to the Ashmolean Museum this weekend for another year! Following the success of the 2012 event the Ashmolean would like to invite you for a celebration of all things embroidered.
Study the history of embroidery in the special exhibition ‘The Eye of the Needle’ which displays, for the first time in public, a selection of eye-catching, virtuoso seventeenth-century embroideries from the internationally renowned Feller Collection, together with outstanding examples from the Ashmolean’s own holdings.
See cutting-edge contemporary as well as traditional embroidery demonstrations; take a guided tour or learn more in a lecture; and enjoy stitching activities for all ages. Bring your own project, or start something new. Experts will be on hand to help you improve your stitching or to get you started if you’re a complete needle novice.
