At Hands Across the Sea Samplers we love to learn something new every day about embroidery and we eagerly devored an interesting article in Spitalfields Life about the Broderers of St Paul’s Cathedral.
If you climb the 141 steps to a windowless chamber high up in a tower of St Paul’s Cathedral you will find The Broderers of St Pauls. The 14 needleworkers are currently busy restoring of a banner of St Barnabas.
The full article can be found here Spitalfields Life
