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
