Exhibition: The Stories Behind the Stitches

The Museum of Cambridge opens a temporary exhibition, “The Stories Behind the Stitches”, exploring wellness, disability and self-expression through Cambridge textiles. “The Stories Behind the Stitches” is a temporary exhibition of needlework, quilts, and other textile objects which explore how the needle and thread has been paramount in Cambridge and Cambridgeshire community’s self-expression during times of War, throughout education, and times of celebration. The exhibit is now open and will be on display until Autumn 2024.
