Embroideries That Record History

The blog for the Embroiders Association of Canada has a very interesting short introduction to Ann Bernard's blog, which talks in detail about various embroideries that record and explain history.

A great many folks who visit Blog are interested in the Bayeux Tapestry, and Ann deals with it in detail here.    Remember, this is a blog, so the entries are latest on top.  This is the first.  You'll have to follow along to understand Ann's points about the embroidery and the history it illustrates, so scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page and click on Next Post to read the entries in the order they unfolded.  Please note that Ann talks about other historical embroideries as she tells the story of what happened in England in the pivotal year 1066.
