We mentioned Emily Sutton’s printed design, Old Curiosity Shop, in an earlier posting, signing off with a promise to make a sample curtain for the Showroom in the New Year. Miracle of miracles the curtain is now hanging in the “Old” Tinsmiths and we are pretty pleased with it. Here are a few views of the curtain which divides two rooms. The curtain is interlined to give luxurious weight and polka dot lining was used for the reverse. The tiny pleat at the heading is particularly useful as we didn’t want to obscure the design with too much fullness. Thanks to Emily and St.Judes for developing the fabric and for Wendy Shaw for making it up in our sewing room.
