Visitors to Battle Museum spent a fascinating afternoon with local embroiderer Tina Greene on October 14.

As part of the Battle Arts and Music Festival, she demonstrated her embroidery on the extract from the Bayeux Tapestry which she is doing for the Museum’s 1066 exhibition next year.

Local embroidery societies and the public joined in, contributing their stitches to a special sampler that Tina had prepared. Shelagh Duffell of the Wool Shop explained what a complicated and tough job it was in the 11th Century to produce linen from flax. Don’t miss out on all the latest breaking news where you live.
