French Shore Historical Society

Embroider a Codfish

Starting at $25 Per Person


May 1 - Sep 30, 2023

Spend 2-hours with local artist and storyteller, Joan, creating your own embroidered codfish using the Bayeux stitch. As you sew, Joan will tell vivid stories of the French Shore and the making of the French Shore Tapestry – some will bring a tear to your eye while others will have you laughing. During warm summer days we'll stitch outside, on days when the weather is less favorable we'll be inside with a warm cup of tea or coffee.
