I am researching the Disabled Soldiers Embroidery Industry, which was formed in London after World War 1.  Im looking for any magazine articles, pictures, or crafted items pertaining to the Industry.  Specifically Im looking for copies of a special issue of Weldons Antique Tapestry Magazine published in England after 1915, probably in the 1920s; I don't know the specific date of publication (but Im working on it!).



Thanks for any help you can provide!  Smiley

suereal and I "fake joined" the Half-a-Hoopla Swap, in which we each worked approximately half the design of an embroidery, and the partner finished the other half.

Here's the half suereal worked:



She included a skein of glow-in-the-dark white floss and an eye.

Here's the finished piece which I sent to her:

approximately 4.5 inches in diameter



I had loads of fun interpreting her beginning; I think we are a well-matched pair of mad scientists swappers.  Smiley
