Heraldry In The News!

An article in the July 29, 2010 edition of the Carluke and Lanark [Scotland] Gazette entitled "Mary McCarron stitches history at Stirling Castle," is about the work that she is doing a part of a team of embroiderers creating two cloths of estate with the heraldry of James V's queen, Mary of Guise, for Stirling Castle's refurbished Renaissance royal palace.

The first cloth of estate, now nearing completion, will be about three feet (one meter) tall, and will be placed in the Queen's Bedchamber.  For her part of this project, Ms. McCarron has been embroidering the Queen's coat of arms (impaled with the arms of her husband) for the center of this cloth using coloured leathers and metal and silk threads.
