British signature cloths

An embroidered signature cloth discovered in Sturminster Newton in Dorset. It was made recently when the community hall was built. A journey to Gallery Oldham revealed a tablecloth filled with a spiral of signatures made by the Town Women’s Guild. Another one I saw in Wales was actually made in Haslingden, Lancashire and is the most worn of all those seen, largely as it has been with a family all that time and in use.
