Thanks for the info.  I think the information on the page you refered to on 
12th century embroidery patterns is actually from Norris or at least most of 
the pictures that are on that site are.  I was already planning to use a 
hoop and do the embroidery as a separate piece because that seemed the most 
logical way to do it.  BTW, what are Q-snaps?  I've never heard of them 
before.  For the garb I'm working on now, I'm just going to do the collar 
and the cuffs, but I eventually want to do the hems as well and I'm trying 
to figure out the best method for sewing longer pieces of fabric without 
using a hoop so my stitches don't get crushed.  I am actually planning to 
use knotwork for this project, but I just wanted to see if anyone else had 
any ideas.  Again, thanks.
