It is not the largest embroidery in the world but it is large. The sampler that the Emboiderers guild organized beats all records as they the worlds longest embroidery at 605.55 meters or 1,986.77 feet. However this looks to have been an interesting project and I must admit I am very worried about that bottle of glue.
The description on You Tube reads:
“Alexandra Drenth and Ellen van Putten, Dutch artists, are making “the largest embroidery” for a big art-event in Woerden, the Netherlands. This work should be an homage to all grandmothers, mothers and daughters of the whole world spending their time as “Quality Time”. This art-event is called Woerdstock and will take place from 27th June until 7th July 2007.
“The largest embroidery” contains embroideries from the beginning of the 20th Century up till now and these works has been made by a lot of people all over the Netherlands. We were receiving embroidery by post and found lots and lots of works at the front door. The press has paid many attention to this project which we called “Experience Quality Time”.”
