Ross Bay Villa Historic House Museum
1490 Fairfield Rd, Victoria, BC V8S 1E8, Canada
A very large three-dimensional needlework picture of the young Queen Victoria hangs in the dining room of Ross Bay Villa Historic House Museum. Is this a genuine 19th Century embroidery or a 20th Century attempt at craft revival? Join battling conservators Simone Vogel-Horridge (paintings) and Colleen Wilson (textiles) as they carefully dismantle this curious artifact and search for the Truth Behind the Stitching.
Wagers permitted. Half time refreshments included
