York Minster

York Minster was another amazing site to see!  What a beautiful church and the stained glass windows are absolutely beautiful.  We had a fascinating lecture by the head of the embroiderer's guild for the church.  Yes, they have a number of embroiderer's who repair the embroideries and make new ones.  The needlework was amazing.  There were examples of everything from medieval to modern embroidery.  What really struck me though was the number of remembrances for people who died in the wars.  I thought the modern altar cloth embroidered medallions were fascinating.  The colors and stitches used were really different.  And that's why I took so many pictures of them!
