Dundee University houses a substantial collection of embroideries and related textiles that were donated to the Dundee College of Art (now called the Duncan of Jordanstone College and part of the University of Dundee). The embroideries were donated after 1961 by the Needlework Development Scheme.

The embroideries originate from all over the world, literally from Mexico to Japan, as well as including a wide range of European examples reflecting different designs and techniques.
