Textile Treasures at Denman College

If you expect the Womens’s Institute’s Denman College, to be all about Ham, Jam and cake, then think again. Prepare yourself to be bowled over  – it’s Needlework heaven.

I was there for a day’s visit with my fellow Paper Dollies on a guided tour of the house and grounds. It’s a beautiful venue.  It wasn’t until we were shown the studio space, that my heart really skipped a beat. Exquisite hand embroidery, Dorset Buttons collections and vintage needlework lined the walls. I was in absolute heaven.
Which one is your favourite?
The perfect day was rounded off with a visit to the College Fabric Shop…
… where I found these fabulous, vintage treasures.  Happy Days x
