Weave a Memory - a unique gift

Bayeux

The Bayeux Tapestry is actually embroidery of 230 feet long and 20 inches high, commissioned by Bishop Odo. It tells the story of the events leading up to and including the Battle of Hastings on October 14, 1066: the Invasion of England by William the Conqueror.   The tapestry was made out of linen and embroidery with colored wool – you can read it like a comic book: many scenes show the history, embarkation, landing and battle.
