An overdue analysis with heartfelt views on aspects of embroidery Disappointed that there were three historical errors in the first chapter on the Bayeaux Tapestry Needs an experienced proof reader I m no anorak but these are glaring errors and although the rest of the book is well researched it s such a shame that the beginning of the book falls short on basic history A fascinating insight into a subject that is easy to overlook Remarkable how much of history can be seen through needlework and its sewers There are so many items mentioned that they deserve an illustrated book of their own and I hope the author will put that together one day soon.
