Tewkesbury Mustard - does anyone still make this?

According to the book "Traditional Foods of Britain" by Laura Mason, a type of mustard made in Tewkesbury was so famous in the 1500s that Shakespeare even wrote it into a line in his play Henry IV: "His wit's as thick as Tewkesbury Mustard" - an insult used by character Sir John ...

Re: Early Lace Making bobbins

It seems that C15th is stretching it a bit, and C16th is when lace making began in the UK. The Lace Guild are as good an authority as we'll get. http://www.laceguild.demon.co.uk/craft/history.html Apparently the nearest to early bobbins would be the current Bucks Thumper, or the Brugges, neither of ...

I am wondering what the early English bobbins would have looked like, and do we still use something similar today? Would they have been plain or spangled? Round in section or square? I rec...

Hacking

When logging in this morning I was told I'd exceeded my number of login attempts. Does this mean someone is trying to hack my a/c and/or the forums?

Strangely enough Ikea has very good, strong, 100% linen fabric which takes dye very well.
