We were delighted when June Hill visited us. The former Museums Manager for the Bankfield Museum, whose book Diana Springall: A Brave Eye was published in 2011, is now a freelance writer and curator. June was project co-ordinator for the major exhibition Cloth and Memory at Salts Mill. She is a regular contributor to magazines and exhibition catalogues, including Embroidery, Selvedge and Textile: The Journal of Cloth and Culture.
After researching our collections she wrote a marvellous article, ‘From Loom to Boom’ which was published in the May/June 2012 issue of Embroidery, the magazine of the Embroiderers' Guild.
