Something wonderful

There is an exhibition on at The NGV International in St. Kilda Road, commencing this Thursday – the 2nd of April called “Exquisite Threads” – an English textile/embroidery exhibition spanning 400 years.

Apparently there is a simply beautiful item embroidered by a 12 year old girl, at a standard that many of us (well me) could never hope to emulate.

There is also an exhibition “A Golden Age of China” 1736 -1795, which includes some textiles, on at the same gallery until the 21st of June.
