Thank you very much for mentioning my wallhanging - btw. it's finished by
now and hanging at the wall of my living room :)
see -> http://embroidery.racaire.at/?cat=47
It's the same technique like the mentioned Tristan Wallhanging from
Wienhausen - you can order a photo map at the cloister (Kloster
Wienhausen) with many big size prints of the taken photos (also close ups
- think it's A3) - I have it at home, it's really beautiful, you just have
to keep in mind that the colours differ a little from the original
(...and before some asks - here is the handout for the technique
Tanja Kohwagner-Nikolai lists in her thesis/book "per manus sororum..."
(sorry, written in German - but if you can read German and are interested
in this kind of embroidery,... it's a great book)
46 different tapestries/wallhangings (?teppiche?), banklaken,... and I
have some other books that even cover other wallhangings that are not
mentioned in this book, because this book mainly covers the
"Niedersachsen" part of Germany :)
...btw. Klosterstich was also used in the Bayeux tapestry and after the
beginning of the 16th century there was a very interesting usage on black
woolen fabric in Swiss :)
...or also to mention the usage of the technique of the Bayeux tapestry -
I call it "Refilsaum" - for example in Iceland in the 14th century,...
(...and yes, there is also an handout for this technique at my homepage -
...or one of the other lovely Tristan hangings - this time "Wool motifs
applied to contrasting woollen ground with edgings in gilded leather "
...see the V&A museum in London ->
...and I am sure there are still a lot undiscovered embroideries in
museums we haven't visited yet ... :)

The Malterer Hanging? I know that Racaire in Austria has been
stitching that one.
