Visiting the Lorina Bulwer Sampler

Today we made our long awaited visit to the study centre at Norwich Castle Museum for our exclusive visit to see the Lorina Bulwer sampler. Many thanks to Lisa Little, Curatorial Assistant for Costume and Textiles for Norfolk Museums Service, who showed us the sampler and told us about Lorina’s life and the origins and history of the sampler.

It was very moving to see the real sampler close up.

 

We photographed our work with the sampler.

We are intending to place our ‘memorial’ to Lorina at her grave in the new year.

Interested in knowing more about Lorina? Here’s the link to the blog from the Frayed exhibition which was at Time and Tide Museum in Great Yarmouth in 2013-14.
