Headstone Manor and Museum, 2018

The Daphne Bullard grant was given for the conservation and display of a pre-WWI tablecloth embroidered by men and women of the Women’s Social and Political Union in Harrow and Middlesex.

The cloth shows hand embroidered signatures including those of prominent suffragettes Christabel Pankhurst and Emily Wilding Davison. The cloth was featured in a 2018 display ‘Bold Bad Ones’ marking the centenary of women’s suffrage.
