I have been meaning to put this post together about a visit I made to the textile museum in Blondous last summer. It is well overdue. Also I am trying to publish this via the Blogsy app for ipad, to see how easy it is to post when I am traveling in the future. Apologies in advance if the formatting goes awry as the Blogger platform does not allow me to preview before publishing with Blogsy.
Ok back to the Textile museum.
Since moving here I have wanted to visit this place and eventually made the time, so Kristin (Olga's Amma) and I set off one morning for a fabulous day out. The textile museum is only open during the summer months although I believe you can view by appointment during the remainder of the year.
If you are interested in textiles or handcrafts then this place is certainly well worth a visit and be prepared to lose a few hours. I have always had an interest in not only handcrafts which over the years I have learnt quite a few but also through working in an antique business I developed a keen interest and appreciation of old lacework and hand crafts. It has been a much overlooked form of domestic artwork, one that woman were often only allowed to pursue.
There are rooms filled with displays and cabinets with drawer after drawer of collections that you can freely browse through as you wish.
