Staffordshire Millennium Embroideries

 

 

Sylvia's embroidery notes

 

From Sylvia's photo album
Henry Sandon with Sylvia Everitt MBE
Antiques Roadshow guru Henry Sandon met Sylvia when she was displaying the Embroideries in September 1998 in Dudley Town Hall. The photograph shows Henry standing in front of the 16th century panel which was nearing completion at the time. Henry was delighted with Sylvia's imaginitive portrayal of Staffordshire's history and described the Embroidery panels as 'an antique of the future'. When he was preparing to leave, he suddenly turned back to Sylvia and said 'My dear, they're begging for a book' - author and public speaker Dianne Mannering was amongst the people who had been listening to Sylvia's talk about the history of Staffordshire illustrated with the as yet incomplete set of Embroidery panels and she heard Henry's remark, the rest, as they say, is history. Dianne's book Sylvia M Everitt's Staffordshire Millennium Embroideries was published in time for the unvieling of the Embroideries by James Hawley the Lord Lieutenant of Staffordshire at Burton Museum on 2nd January 2000.
