From 1934 to 1962, the Needlework Development Scheme collected contemporary and historical textile work for teaching and encouraging needle crafts. Deposited at the Glasgow School of Art when the Scheme closed, and augmented by later acquisitions, the collection now includes work from many countries and many different techniques. Presented by the curator, this catalogue describes and illustrates 82 of the best examples, ranging from a 17th century plaited silk belt to a 1930s linen sample book.
