Definately true, but I was aiming my comments more at the 're-enactment'
market, and wanted to discourage anyone from thinking that her projects
were the same as the originals.

I think this book's by a New Zealander.  (They take to being called
Australians the same way that Canadians take to being called Americans!)  I
have to admit to knowing very little about contemporary Aust and N.Z.
embroidery, although if I can make it to Embroidery 2000, that might
change!  Do you know if there are still openings for teachers, and if they
want art-historical as well as hands on classes?
