Hi There,

I thought I'd just say hi. I'm just starting out in my study of Elizabethan England. My main focus at the present time is Elizabethan embroidery. I'm working on a sweetbag and a polychrome coif at the moment. I've just finished a blackwork shirt, of the non-counted variety, based on the shirt held at Warwich Museum.

Cheers,
Jane

Welcome aboard! Do you have any pictures of the shirt at Warwich? I don't think I've seen it!

Cheers!

Hi,

The only pictures I've found were on the Warwick Museum page, I've got them on my website detailing construction.

Hi, I'm obsessed with the period, mainly because of Shakespeare. I'm a shameless Oxfordian and don't care who knows it! Hold the arrows, folks! lol

I'm also a reader of historical fiction, currently deep into Reay Tannahill's Fatal Majesty. It's all about Mary, Queen of Scots.
