Well, I’m a little slow on the uptake, but for those of you who also didn’t know, the Plimoth Plantation blog, The Embroiderers’ Story, has changed locations! I didn’t receive the last two post notifications in my feedreader for some reason, so I was oblivous. Thanks, Megan, for the heads-up!

The new Embroiderers’ Story blog is being hosted by Tricia, and you can find it at Thistle Threads:

Plimoth Plantation has suffered a bit from the present troubled financial climate, so they’ve had to make some changes in plans for the jacket, which will still be completed. They’ll be announcing the plans for the jacket soon, as the exhibition at Plimoth has been cancelled.

Anyway, to catch up on all the news surrounding this masterpiece, visit the Embroiderers’ Story at Thistle Threads, where you will see more progress on the jacket! Oh, and they’ve started the birds, and they are GORGEOUS! So don’t miss it!

  1. It looks like you have only a few more opportunities to work on the jacket, Mary. So when are you coming out east? You know, it’s only a short drive from here! And I’d be happy to go with you!
