This is a short post, but I couldn’t resist. This morning, I opened the Guardian, and what did I see:
The embroidery article, which you can find here, concerns a “a bitter internal row over proposals to try to save the 115-year-old institution from liquidation”. Apparently, despite embroidery seeing a huge boom in sales, brought about in part by the popularity of Bridgerton on Netflix, the Embroidery Guild is financially strapped nonetheless.
I am, however, quite bemused, Bridgerton or no, to see the Embroidery Guild sharing the headlines with Covid, Brexit, and other topics of national and international import at the top of the front page. That said, Wisdom the albatross is there, too.
