A 104 metre tapestry, that tells the story of the journey of Jacobite Rebellion from Rome to The Battle of Prestonpans. It has involved many in its production. Creating the visual story that is based on research mainly from the book Battle of Prestonpans 1745 by Martin Margulies. Although I have used a much wider net, Martin's Book has been the main inspiration. The original idea came from Gordon Prestoungrange after he saw the Bayeux Tapestry. It has involved 260+ stitchers, 10 million stitches, 3000 metres of thread and been produced in Scotland, England, Ireland, USA, Australia and France.
The tapestry is a simple timeline, every five panels are stitched together.
