Special Saturday Tours

Special Saturday Tours of the RSN                                                                 

For 2008 we are introducing four Saturday opportunities to see our Collection, and on some occasions, the work of Apprentices and possibly demonstrations of work.  Why not bring a friend or relative with you and introduce them to our vital work in keeping the art of hand embroidery alive. All the tours have a limited number of spaces so please book early to ensure your place.  The dates and tours are as follows and to book please ring or email
