Welcome to Frayed

Hello, I’m Alison Hall (better known as Ali) the Exhibitions Coordinator for Great Yarmouth Museums.  Frayed: Textiles on the Edge is an exhibition I’m working on with Ruth Battersby Tooke, the Costume and Textiles Curator for Norfolk Museums and Archaeology Service.  Ruth is the project curator, and my job is to pull everything together and make sure we’re ready to open on time! 

 The exhibition will be held at Time and Tide Museum of Great Yarmouth Life.  We change our exhibition twice each year, and this  will be our autumn/winter show, following Alfred Wallis: Works from the Kettle’s Yard Collections, which is our current show.

Over the next few months as we get ready to open Frayed, I’ll be keeping you up to date with what’s going on and the different processes involved in making the exhibition; things like interpretation, exhibition design, graphics, audio and so on.  Meanwhile, Ruth will give you a behind the scenes glimpse at some of the objects and the people who created them.  We also hope to introduce a few of the other people we’re working with, through guest posts on this blog.

    Hello there, fascinating to read about ‘Frayed Edge’ I have need of some advice regarding a framed embroidered piece of cloth. Not a sampler or cross stitch. It was supposed to have been bought at a sale of items belonging to Queen Alexanders beach house at Snettisham. I need help to identify it can you assist please?

      Dear Susan,
      If you’d like to contact our Costume and Textiles department, we’ll do our best to help you. Please contact Lisa Little, curatorial assistant, at lisa.little@norfolk.gov.uk – a low res photograph or two of your framed embroidered cloth would be a great help, along with as much information as you can provide. Best wishes, Ali
