I had an appointment at Hand & Lock (the largest embroidery firm in the UK) while in London. I was their liaison person in Sydney, Australia, in 2007 for an embroidery conference at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney - also curated an exhibition for the firm at the Powerhouse. I have been approached again to be their liaison person for another embroidery conference to celebrate the firm's 250th anniversary in 2017. There is to be a conference in Sydney, then Chicago and finally London. After the meeting with Alastair McLeod (the chairman), Jessica and Robert, I took numerous photographs for my blog, with their permission of course.
