In the year 2009-2010 Europe celebrated the 1100th anniversary of the founding of the famous abbey at Cluny – often called The Lighthouse of medieval Europe – by 12 monks led by their abbot, Bernon, coming from abbeys of Baume-les-Messieurs and Gigny in the Jura region of France. Springing from the same Jura region is the most amazing collective adventure of 400 embroiderers and seamstresses coming not just from France but also Germany and Switzerland.
I was delighted to see included the local priory of St Pancras at Lewes. We are very grateful to Marie-Jeanne Roulière-Lambert from Lons-le-Saunier for telling us about this wonderful and inspiring project. To order your book click here. To visit Marie-Jeanne's blog click here.
