Early Stuart needlework exhibit at the Fitzwilliam

"Figures on Fabric" will be on display at the Octagon Gallery of the Fitzwilliam Museum (at the University of Cambridge, in England) through December 30.

The exhibition is predominantly of English 17th century needlework, an era particularly rich in the use of complex techniques and varied materials. Some English and European tapestries and woven panels will further illustrate the theme of figures decorating fabric.
