French Shore Tapestry

The French Shore Tapestry is a 66 meter (216 ft) long embroidered tour de force of storytelling inspired by the famous 11th century Bayeux Tapestry. Created in France and northern Newfoundland, the memorable linen and wool mural tells the history of the region’s French Shore, from the pre-historic animals that roamed the forests and shoreline to the moment in 2006 when a few talented women in the tiny outport of Conche began their embroidering odyssey. ¬†As the viewer moves along the tapestry, a parade of historic and colourful characters bring alive the events and legends that make French Shore history unique.
