This is a colourful example of weaving that makes you think of KOGIN, Japanese running stitch in patterns.
Another section of the museum displayed needlework in schools through the ages.
When I saw this blue needle case I had to smile - it is just like mine, rough, in simple stitching and with initials, and well used. How many girls made the same case in the early 60s?
Get used to stitching neatly from the start!
It makes you happier
than if you do it sloppily.
The work gets tidier.
Sloppy work makes no one happy.
These days 'sloppy' work is called free form and is highly thought of. It makes many people happy! How times change!
