They began their journey with textiles as a hobby; moved through a period of amateur enthusiasm where they learned and consolidated skills; and then finally to a stage where they began to question the meaning and purpose of making. The best part about hand embroidery is always the little details! The Countess Collection offers the finest needlework tools in an array of styles and colors. Winnicott (1971) explored ‘transitional’ objects such as the baby’s comforter, the blanket or soft toy that becomes the baby’s personal possession and which helps them negotiate their acceptance that the mother is ‘other’ to their ‘self’. 29 These ‘transitional’ objects allow us to work out social relationships, to simultaneously hold on and let go. 26 Kristeva, J., 1982.

Stitch a needlework keepsake that looks like your photo in a tapestry! Nicola Henley has been involved in educational work for over 20 years ‘teaching and developing schools projects and working in consultation with the arts council about how to improve arts practice in schools and hospitals and health care settings.’ Sometimes she worries that making her own work is ‘self-indulgent’ but although working in education and healthcare feel ‘meaningful and worthwhile’ and satisfy her ‘social conscience’ they tend to become ‘all consuming’. 52 Laura McCafferty found that after her daughter was born, the ‘destructive niggle’ began that she ‘could be doing something so much more valuable.’ This uncertainty about the lack of value that their art practice brings to society was expressed surprisingly often during the interviews. 53 Karen Fleming is now interested in ‘what a textile can do,’ how it can be used to communicate and the function textiles have in terms of what people learn and experience.

NIVAL records have been compiled from donated archives and literature such as exhibition catalogues. McGuinness was beginning to question the relationship of textiles and gender and his interest has now shifted from a ‘community attached to a place’ to ‘communities that are attached to a shared experience.’ Although he finds the Burren a ‘contemplative and reflective space to work in’ he no longer draws on it as the visual basis for his work. 12 McGuinness had begun to question, ‘Why was I, as a male, making textiles?

This establishes an archive of this unique phenomenon and the legacy it has left in textile culture, so these narratives are not lost. Crowther (1959) reported there was a tendency for practical and aesthetic subjects to be dropped (by the most able students) in favour of academic subjects. 3 The Newsome Report (1963) emphasised the value of art for less academically able children and suggested that needlework ‘may have a therapeutic value’ and ‘emotional satisfaction.’ 4 Several participants reported that they had not voluntarily dropped art, but rather they had not been allowed to do it. 5 Rose Little said, ‘I wasn’t allowed to do art O-level.
