The V&A Textiles Room… OF DOOM

When Melissa and I were at the Victoria & Albert Museum in #OMGLondon, we spent a ridiculous amount of time in the textiles study room. Rows upon rows upon rows of carefully filed and displayed lace, embroidery, whitework, woven fabrics, knitted, tatted, crocheted…

I mean, this place was seriously the Bermuda Triangle. I’m surprised we’re not still there.

In fact, I’m frankly kind of pissed off that we’re not still there.

Ah well.

Fortunately, the V&A has a remarkably tolerant attitude toward photography (it’s allowed everywhere in the museum except in special exhibits and on certain items that are on loan), and they encourage visitors to share their photos in a dedicated Flickr group.

Go ahead. Lose yourself in it.

  1. okay that’s it, I’m undone….. un. done…
    I don’t know how I will get there, but V&A is at the top of the bucket list….
    W.O.W.
