Yes, There Is Embroidery Post-1800

I have to remind myself sometimes that modern textiles exist. I'm easily lost in the 16th, 17th, 18th or 19th century. To keep an eye on the latest trends I do subscribe to Fiberarts by Interweave Press.

The Jan-Feb 2005 issue has a little article by Heidy Van Beurden A Bag for Every Occasion. The article was a great gateway to the website for the Tassenmuseum Hendrikje.

With text available in English, French or German and exquisite photos from the collection's purses and bags (3,000+ on display if you visit in person), this is a don't miss site for the stitcher or costumer.
