Family Exhibition Tour Available

We are delighted to announce that we will be running a bespoke Family Tour of our Stories in Stitch exhibition on Wednesday 9th August at Hampton Court Palace. 

This is an ideal opportunity to introduce children or grandchildren to the art of hand embroidery with a visit to our popular Stories in Stitch exhibition and Taster embroidery session. 

The exhibition is full of characters they will recognise including Mary Poppins, Superman, Alice in Wonderland and Little Red Riding Hood.  

As part of the session, the children will also hand embroider this cute fox design (image left).   

The Family Tour starts at 11am and lasts 1.5 hours.  It costs £25 per family which includes one adult and up to two children (recommended for children over the age of 5).
