Tell me your story

In the first instance please complete the questionnaire below and indicate if you are available for follow up research.

If the person that taught you is available and willing it would be fantastic to have their response to the questionnaire too. For those of us that were taught by people that have gone to the great sewing circle in the sky we are too late to ask them these questions, but if you know some of their needlework history then please do add this information in if you wish.

Please answer the questions here as fully and candidly as you can.

About the “age” question – I am trying to get a feel for different eras and how times and sewing trends have changed.

If I get that far I won’t publish any details without consent.

You can copy and paste them into a new document and email them to
