Also referred to in several sources (particularly Schuette) as "convent
stitch." When executed, the stitch strongly resembles tapestry weaving, which *may*
be the reason it was misnamed at some point. That's only a guess, though.
I'd also be interested in finding out exactly when the Bayeux "tapestry"
started to be called a tapestry rather than an embroidery. 14th century? 19th
century? Does anyone have any sources that discuss the earliest descriptions or
mentions of the work?
