• A Little History Lesson: One of the most famous cross stitch pieces is The Bayeux Tapestry, which measures over 70 meters long. It is believed that it was commissioned in the 11th century. Although it is called a tapestry, it is in fact an embroidery, stitched (not woven) in woolen yarns on linen. The tapestry is on display at Bayeux in Normandy, France. (Source: BayeuxTapestry.org.uk)
