British Signature Cloths

Lynn is interested in sharing information on newly discovered examples of embroidered signature cloths, new and  old; many of which were made as fundraisers for different causes or as a commemoration of a local event.  She has a substantial visual record of cloths, ranging from an example discovered in Sturminster Newton in Dorset, made in the last decade,  to one uncovered in the Oldham archives thought to be stitched in the mid twentieth century,  a tablecloth filled with a spiral of signatures made by the Town Women’s Guild. Another one in a private collection is now at home in North Wales, was made as a church fundraiser in Haslingden, Lancashire in the early twentieth century.
