1989/3Bulletin / March 1989(none) / Many apologies for the lack of Bulletin in February. The Bayleaf Project, with the deadline for text for the Exhibition, and the urgency of completing the furnishings - in particular textiles, and domestic equipment, has kept everyone working at full capacity, and unfortunately the Bulletin had to take second place.

The whole project is proving very exciting for everyone, and the saying that you learn something new everyday is certainly proving true! Everything is researched to the minutest detail, right down to the correct stitch and thread for sewing the sheets for the beds together! Once we know what it is, typewriters will be abandoned for needles and thread! Some of the textiles to be used are really lovely, and the furniture being made by Roger Champion is superb. It is currently on show in the entrance to Crawley Hall. He spent two days in London studying furniture of the era at the V & A.

Tim Stanton has made prototypes for the Surrey Whiteware pottery, and is developing these \\
