A Brief History of Needlepoint (not tapestry)

The Mr. X Stitch website has a regular column by Ruth Singer that talks about various types of handwork.  If you are interested in how tapestry differs from needlepoint, her two-part article will be quite interesting.  Of course if you are English, you'll call needlepoint "tapestry" which adds to the confusion Ruth talks about in part one.

Note that she's really talking about 16-17th Century European tapestries here.
