Time to make a cuppa and settle down for a good browse as Ann Bernard over at Stitching Idyllic has been writing a series of blog posts about large public embroideries that record historical events. Most people know of the Bayeux Tapestry but many are unaware of contemporary embroideries that also tell national narratives. Ann has been adding to this interesting series steadily building up a solid story of these embroideries and their cultural significance.
So, take some time out and pop over to Stitching Idyllic and allow Ann to tell their story to you. I have some links below to provide a few tasters.
