Janet Clare‘s family are a family of collectors. Not of fine art but of the more mundane conkers, pebbles, fossils and shells. Her boys became collectors the very moment they were able to fill their pockets. They have a vintage glass fronted cabinet in their hall filled to the brim with treasures- the boys call it the curiosity cabinet. It was only a matter a time before their collecting became a book, this book ‘A Field Guide’ which is filled with quilts and cushions and little projects to stitch through the whole year.
