Description

Replica Bayeux tapestry being held by seamstress Mia Hansson

Mia Hansson, a period seamstress from Sweden, living in the UK, began creating a full-size replica of the Bayeux Tapestry in 2016. After four years of work, she has completed just over a third of it and expects to be finished in another six years or so.

She has appeared in newspapers and magazines and on TV and radio; she has given talks and displayed the tapestry to private groups and at public events, and she even has a mention on the Bayeux Tapestry’s Wikipedia page.

Mia has followers from all over the world, and many of them keep up with her work through her Facebook group, Mia’s Bayeux Tapestry Story, where she shares her progress and posts her observations and musings about the tapestry and her embroidery process.

Mia drawing her Bayeux tapestry imagesMia draws the designs onto her tapestry by hand, and this book is a collection of her hand-drawn images, for use as a colouring book or as patterns for various crafts, such as embroidery or woodwork.

We launched this book through a Kickstarter run during June 2020, to amazing success! The campaign reached its pledge target within just 90 minutes, and was over 800% backed by the end of the month.
