What you need to bring All materials and equipment are normally provided to work the embroidery. However, during the Covid-19 pandemic, you may wish to bring your own 8" embroidery hoop if you have one, together with your normal sewing kit. A seat frame is best, but not essential. Alternatively, you may borrow a standard hoop for the day if requested in advance. Cost £45 per person including all materials for the embroidery. About the Workshop Bayeux stitch is so named because it is the main stitch that was used in working the famous Bayeux Tapestry. It is a simple to learn and very suitable for beginners, with only three basic stitches. The design will be pre-printed onto your silk and you will work the embroidery using pure silk threads that are easy to sew with. We aim for you to part-complete the design by the end of the workshop and feel confident to complete the embroidery at home. During the workshop, there will some instruction about making up your own designs to use with this stitch.
