'In quest of two needlefuls of thread': an illustrated talk

About this Event

It is well known that Jane Austen was clever with her needle, and several fine examples of her work can  be seen in the the House. But what role does needlework play in the plots of her novels and the depiction of her characters? 

In this lively presentation, author and Jane Austen expert Maggie Lane and actor and writer Angela Barlow explore the ubiquity of sewing in women’s lives, the social as well as practical functions the activity fulfilled and, most fascinating of all, the purposes which Jane Austen made it serve in her fiction.

Part of the Jane Austen Regency Week programme.
