History of Embroidery Link


As we are looking at embroidery through the ages a new link has been added to the Blog to assist you.

If you look under Links to Interesting Blogs on the left hand side of your screen you will see there is a tag for 'History of Embroidery'.  This blog was created by Helen Cowans and has been recently updated.

When you launch the blog there is a bar along the top with various dates along it.  You click on the period you are interested in and up pops the history.  Just scroll down.

Bayeux Tapestry is on there ....  with lots of links to other sites from it.
