The National Federation of Women's Institutes

Textile Recording Project

The National Needlework Archive is working with the NFWI to create a full and detailed inventory of all the textiles belonging to the WIs in England, Wales, Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man. The WI National Textile Collection forms a substantial part of the Nation's craft and artistic heritage and it is vital that a structured record is made of these artefacts, and their documented history, which is held in trust by local WIs across the country.

Calling all current and former WI members for your memories, memorabilia and photos.

Now is the time to tidy out all those cupboards, delve into those black plastic bags, get to the back of drawers, to the bottom of chests, under beds and into lofts!

We also need to check out the cupboards, chests and wall space in churches, village halls and Tysoe School. (This project will include all textiles, stitched or painted, lace, linens, book covers, etc.)

We need your help

Please contact Mrs Ann Beeny in Tysoe (680431) or Mrs June Wreford in Whatcote (680294) who are collating written and photographic information about the pieces of work in order to complete and return the forms on behalf of Tysoe WI.

This site is maintained by villagers of Oxhill for the benefit of the community and those interested in the history, news and activities that make the village such a pleasant place to live.
