This is the podium cover I made for the Messianic group in London. I wish I had a better picture of this thing, because it was beautiful. It was made of fine linen twill and embroidered in real silk floss, with the lettering in couched gold thread. I picked up the habit of fine needlework in London because The Royal School of Needlework had excellent classes. In England there is a tradition of embroidery and textiles as an art form, "Opus Anglicanum", English work.
