If you love sewing go and see Jane Campion's new film "Bright Star" this weekend. Not only it is visually ravishing to watch, has Keat's poetry and superb acting it also recognises Fanny Brawne's sewing skills and lovingly lingers on needles going in and out of fabric. Particularly poignant is her changing of the white stitching round her underwear to black thread after Keats has died.
