I was much interested to read in a recent issue of the Spectator of the revival of an old quilting industry in some of the mining areas. There must be many such ancient handicrafts in danger of dying out through lack of interest or information on the part of the purchasing public. I am convinced that many of your readers would gladly help these struggling and independent crafts were their interest once aroused and were the necessary information more readily accessible. I would be grateful for any details of village or local handicrafts still being practised.—W. M.
