A mid Powys museum is currently holding a free exhibition to celebrate the popular tradition of sampler-making and embroidery, the county council has said.

Using pieces from the museum’s reserve collections, Radnorshire Museum has created an exhibition based around a set of works made by three generations of the same local family, the Vaughan-Whitalls, and embellished with a selection of colourful and finely worked textiles.

Samplers and Embroidery is a temporary exhibition and will be running at Radnorshire Museum until Saturday 15 April. The museum is open from 10am – 4pm on Wednesday to Friday, and 10am – 1pm on Saturdays. In April, the museum will be open from 10am – 4pm on Saturdays.

Cllr David Selby, Cabinet Member for a More Prosperous Powys, said: “It’s fantastic to have exhibitions such as this in our museum in Llandrindod, showing the history of work by a local family.

“Powys residents and visitors to the county are very welcome to take a look and see what the exhibition has to offer.”
