This is so, so fascinating, thank you so much for sharing, I’m super interested in how you use textiles for storytelling but also have written the book to elaborate on these stories - could you share your thoughts on sharing stories through both textiles themselves and books/documenting/recording - what is your experience of them working together? Do you think that books have a role in making the stories of the textiles more accessible?

I absolutely connect to your work. Thank you for sharing your knowledge about the Slavic towels. Is there a particular space I can go to research an embroidery piece from Leningrad (St. Petersburg) that I have inherited?

Have you looked at the embroideries of Shri Lanka - Ethel Mairet is famous for her work in the early 20th C finding and collecting & continuing the traditions - this has to be an important part of finding these types of embroidery, no? I love the various examples you have shown in your talk are you looking at them in this way too?
