Bomticc Tapestry: SCA 50 year Tapestry Display

This year we are privileged to be able to host THL Jadwiga Wlodzislawska and her Bomticc Tapestry in the Arts and Science area. THL Jadwiga took inspiration from the Bayeux Tapestry and created a 50 panel embroidered history of the SCA.
The tapestry will be displayed on Thursday and Friday in the large pavilion in the Arts and Sciences area. There will be opportunities to take a tour of the Bomticc Tapestry with THL Jadwiga (days and times posted in the A&S area).
It is an amazing work of art that should not be missed.
