Sew Small Exhibition - 2016

Scroll down the page to see the images and click on an individual image to learn a little bit more about it.

The Exhibition was sponsored by Miniatura and Madeira UK Ltd and was hosted by the Forge Mill Needle Museum.

The museum is well worth a visit as it is set in beautiful countryside next to the rushing stream which powered the machinery used to give needles their final polish in Victorian times.

The Sew Small Exhibition took up a whole floor of the museum and featured a dolls' house (kindly donated by Barbara's Mouldings) full of all kinds of needlework items that were knitted, crocheted, made of lace, needlepoint, tatting or just plain tailoring. There were also a number of display cases showing even more items created by talented members.

This gallery shows just a sample of the items that are included on the CD.
