I’ve discovered some great new or new-ish resources on the internet.
First, I’ve known about the Textile Blog for a while now. It’s a fantastic resources, and all of the articles are well researched, with the sources listed (something I need to aspire to – the source listing, not the research)
The blog has had a recent upgrade, which includes a list of every textile related exhibitions on now at pretty much every museum, everywhere (OK, they are missing at least one that I know of). I haven’t figured out a logic to the order yet, but it’s still a great resource. Unfortunately, it makes me wish I could travel just about everywhere to see just about every exhibition!
Second, I’ve found an exciting new blog. It’s the blog I want to write but don’t have time for: Historical Fancy Dress. It’s still new, so we’ll have to watch and see how good it turns out to be, but so far the indications are very promising.
