Heather Cawte: Battle Of Stamford Bridge Tapestry

Today on the Stitchery Stories podcast, Heather Cawte shares the story of the Battle Of Stamford Bridge Tapestry Project. It is a community embroidery celebrating the Battle Of Stamford Bridge in 1066.

The project started in 2015. Since then, great progress has been made  with the stitching, and also in generating media attention and fundraising. And if you are wondering where Stamford Bridge is, it is in the East Riding Of Yorkshire, a few miles east of the City Of York, in England. 🙂

Susan Weeks chats with Heather about:

  • How the tapestry project got started
  • Skills the team have developed
  • How the design, colours, materials & stitches were chosen
  • The excitement of Royal admirers
  • How the stitchers organise their work
  • The size and style of the tapestry
  • When will it be finished
  • Where will it be displayed
  • Speaking, exhibitions, & displays
  • Media attention & spreading the word

The story of the battle and its importance in British history is told by Heather. You can listen to the separate audio file here: The Story Of The Battle Of Stamford Bridge 1066
