THE EYE OF THE NEEDLE: ENGLISH EMBROIDERIES FROM THE FELLER COLLECTION
The Eye of the Needle displayed, for the first time in public, a selection of eye-catching, virtuoso 17th-century embroideries from the internationally renowned Feller Collection, together with outstanding examples from the Ashmolean’s own holdings.
The exhibition was open at the Ashmolean Museum 1 August – 12 October 2014.
We are profoundly grateful to Micheál and Elizabeth Feller for the opportunity to display their world-renowned collection together with the Ashmolean’s important embroideries.
The exhibition has been generously supported by Mallams.
This exhibition has been made possible by the provision of insurance through the Government Indemnity Scheme.
