Continuing her commitment to spread heirloom inspiration throughout the world, Martha Pullen introduces her book and embroidery CD collection, Victoria and Albert Museum of Childhood. The third installment in Martha’s Favorite Places Series, this glorious book whisks the heirloom sewing enthusiast off to the museum in Bethnal Green, a borough in the East End of London, where England’s national childhood collections are housed. Authentic period children’s clothes of English and European provenance are presented in full-color and detailed through the finer points of sewing to bring the intricacies of age-old needlework into the 21st century. From one of Prince Albert Edward’s dresses His Majesty wore in 1843 to a silk puffing and lace hood that covered a child’s head half a century later, each piece featured in this new book displays a level of finery that Martha has made her mission to perpetuate. Together with two embroidery CD’s featuring over 80 designs reproduced from the actual garments and accessories and antique line art, this breathtaking book is a tribute to the seamstresses who originally created each masterpiece and a treasure of sewing inspiration for generations to come.
