Royal School of Needlework and the Royal Wedding Dress

I posted a neat news video a few weeks ago on the Sunday Short Takes about the Royal School of Needlework and they got a lot more attention recently when it was revealed that they worked on Catherine Middleton’s wedding dress. There is a press release at the RSN website with some of the details of their work.

I know my fellow needleworkers would like some more details and up close pictures, but they seem to be hard to come by! At least there are plans for the dress to go on public display. So here are some links I collected, including some pictures and interviews with the embroiderers who worked on the dress.
