If you didn't see it last night, do try to watch the latest in the Fabric of Britain series, The Wonder of Embroidery. It looks at the skill of medieval embroiderers and the staggering work they produced, known simply as Opus Anglicanum.
Coming right up to date, our own Great Tapestry of Scotland will be going on tour soon, but 40 of its panels will be on display from tomorrow until the 13th. of October in Cheltenham Town Hall as part of Cheltenham Literature Festival, and on Sunday, 6th. October, there will be a special event on the work featuring Alexander McCall Smith, whose brainchild the tapestry was, and fellow project trustees James Naughtie and Alistair Moffat. That will be both entertaining and informative, I'm sure.
