I find one embroidered poem - in the middle of a 1500's German table cover
- - in one of my embroidery books about lettering for embroidery. Not what I
would call a scroll in the SCA sense. I can't identify the stitches in the
not-very-good b/w photo I have, but they are definitely counted-thread, and
resemble modern needlepoint. The piece is (or was) in the V&A.
