Jean Baggott 08 March 2010
Detail from the tapestry
An Embroidered Memoir

Accomplished seamstress Jean Baggott has produced a cross-stitch tapestry detailing the events of her life. She focuses on her wartime childhood in the industrialised Black Country, her vivid memories of growing up in a house where the bath hung on a nail on the yard and children made rag rugs, and she sets the narrative within a wider historical context. Jean is now 72 and in the final year of studying for a history degree. She joins Jane to look back on her life and the pictures that she has created.
