Thank you Phyllis, that was impressive, interesting and encouraging.

How popular are touch tapestries with girls these days, can anyone say?

My elder sisters enjoyed them when we were little in the early 1970s.  Only, looking round the Ad Gefrin website and having googled briefly failing to find anyone who does produce touch-tapestry kits with Old English-related pictures and patterns, I wonder how much girls might enjoy them, if only there were such a thing?

Seriously because, surely, the knotwork, carpet pages etc. lend themselves to touch tapestries, and quite possibly the narrower colour range would be easier for beginners and younger girls.
