Did you know – Jane Nicholas’s embroidered ‘Border of Shakespeare’s Flowers’ was inspired by the painted border of a letter written by Lady Anne Clifford to her father in 1598. The border contains fourteen assorted flowers and fruits popular at the time and can be found in her book ‘Shakespeare’s Flowers in Stumpwork’.
