Cross Stitch is Period!: Honorable Lady Agnes Berengarii de Girona

For decades, historic embroiderers often stated, “Cross stitch is a more modern form of embroidery”. However, over the last decade we have found that no, it was used in pre-16th century Europe and the evidence has been under our very noses for all this time. This is not a class about long-arm cross stitch, this is about picture cross stitch. Come learn about our evidence and learn how to cross stitch in a period
