Designer Sue Shields was commissioned to create a tea towel tribute to the hard working women of the linen industry. The design includes a cut-out pattern and instructions to assemble our Linen Millie doll. These dolls are a focus for crafting skill, productive fellowship and memories old and new, all part of Our Linen Stories.

For Our Linen Stories Dovecot, we are delighted to present a special display of dolls made up and individually embroidered by women from Scotland and N.Ireland. Linen Millie K1 is better known as June and was embroidered by the first of our local seamstresses from Kirkcaldy.
