Stitchin’ awesome, royally cool

June 3rd, 2012

I saw this beautiful and interesting piece on the Royal School of Needlework on this morning’s CBS Sunday Morning.  The art of stitchery and history.  Too good not to share!

  2. The fabulous scott allegedly said:

  3. The fabulous Mary Ann allegedly said:

    Wow, that was so interesting. Thanks for sharing it Monica. Wouldn’t that be a fabulous place to take a class!

  4. The fabulous Pat McDonald allegedly said:

    Thank you for taking the time to post that interesting info!!! In my quilts, I enjoy adding a little embroidery to the blocks. Also, my dad is born in the UK and I’m always interested in UK history. (He was a Grenadier Guard in the middle 1930’s and the present queen and her sister would come out to play. They knew the Guards would have to stand at attention. Their nanny would make them go back into into the palace.) Pat McDonald (And yes, my dad is still alive and mentally very sharp!)

    Thank you SO much for sharing this. Absolutely fascinating, especially for the anglophile that I am!

  6. The fabulous Sharon allegedly said:

    I saw it this morning, but was disappointed that they didn’t have a longer piece. More, please!

  7. The fabulous Rhonda G allegedly said:

    They have a school in CA now. It doesn’t teach all the classes but it does teach a lot of them.

    Thank you so much for posting this. It was very inspiring.

  9. The fabulous Wrennette allegedly said:

    Dear Monica…….thankyou for such a fine gift. I enjoyed every second. I am one of those people who enjoy the ‘details’. If I lived in England I would be a serious candidate for this kind or work and ‘enjoyment’. We are enjoying the celebrations of Her Majesty beginning this morning thru Tuesday. I decorated our mantel with all of my little English treasures. We’re not English but my dear Mom landed on Normandy with the first Doctors and Nurses and spent many cold days in England and has lovely memories..even then. Thankyou so much, you are most thoughtful.

    Thank you for posting that piece! I have been eyeing that school for years, wishing we had the equivalent here. Maybe someday I can go there and take a class.

  11. The fabulous Ann X allegedly said:

    Thank you! This is why I love blogging - you can always learn something that you had no idea before. Now I’m into RSN page digging - thanks to your info.

  12. The fabulous Jenelle allegedly said:

    That’s so interesting! Thank you for posting the clip. I would love to formally study needlework and have the opportunity to work on such amazing projects.

  16. The fabulous DianeP allegedly said:

    Thank you for sharing Monica! That was a very interesting piece from CBS. Glad to know embroidery is taken so seriously by those young people!

  17. The fabulous laurie allegedly said:

    Perfect accompaniment to my cup of coffee this morning. Well done.

    And now I have ideas floating around my head about going to school for textile restoration.

    I remember that Erica Wilson was trained at the RSN. I always thought that would be a wonderful place to learn.

  22. The fabulous Thimbleanna allegedly said:

    That was Awesome!!! Thanks for posting! (And btw, your kitty looks like PaulKitty. As it should be for stepkitties!)

  23. The fabulous Aurora N. allegedly said:

    Wow! That was fantastic! Thank you for sharing. Now I will share something funny… I had surgery yesterday, and apparently as I was waking from the anaesthetic (after telling the nurses repeatedly: I love you), I then asked them, could I go and home and do some sewing! The nurses thought it was funny, and when I was fully conscious, I realised how much I must think (and dream) about sewing! Thanks, Monica, the sewing bug has well and truly bitten me! Aurora xo

  24. The fabulous Dolores allegedly said:

    I am a fan of Sunday Morning and saw this. It was wonderful. Thanks for sharing it with so many others.

  25. The fabulous Linda allegedly said:

    Thank you for sharing that. I loved seeing the diversity of the students. It’s good to know that Great Britain encourages and supports traditional hand work.

  26. The fabulous Kristyne allegedly said:

    Thanks Monica! I would love to take the 3 year course … someday.

  27. The fabulous KerryQ allegedly said:

    Loved that! CBS Sunday Morning has always done such a great job. No sound bites. The work is gorgeous!

Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
