A replica of the Bayeux Tapestry will be taking pride of place in Wisbech Library for an exclusive talk and display.
Mia Hansson turned her love of craft-making into a mission to recreate a full scale replica of the medieval artwork.
She estimates the project will take more than a decade to complete but says it is for “handicraft interest rather than a historic one”.
The 44-year-old started work on the design almost two years ago and aims to get it as close to the original as possible.
The tapestry tells the story of the future William I’s conquest of England, culminating in the Battle of Hastings and the defeat of Harold in 1066.

The event will take place on December 6 at 10am to 12noon.
Entry is £2, to be paid on arrival, but to secure one of the 50 seats before email Mia at: firstname.lastname@example.org
