As a Worcestershire girl, mad about tapestry and history, I just had to reblog this post from the remarkable people at the National Trust’s Textile Conservation Studio – do have a look at what they’ve done – and if you’re near Oxford, pay the finished piece a visit…

Thanks for posting this – I noticed the other day that the building work at the Bodeian had finally finished – definitely something to check out.
I’m kicking myself: we were in Oxford on Saturday and walked past! Oh well, an excellent excuse to go back soon.
What a lovely piece. Thank you for reposting. I love the photos and the details about what they did and how they did it. A real pleasure to read and see.
Wonderful isn’t it – we’re so lucky to have people with these skills.
It’s wonderful isn’t it. My sister is head of insurance for the National Trust so I often get the inside track on these things. I’m hoping to get to see it.
Oh how fortunate! I admire these people so much – true love and commitment.
Fascinating stuff, both the words and the real stuff. Thank you.
