The Labyrinth of the Reims Cathedral – New Expo Release

Here is my next Needlework Release: The Labyrinth of the Reims Cathedral. I am always on the lookout for interesting and inspiring images. When I was looking up labyrinths one day, I came across this one – so unique for its geometry. At first, I was simply enjoying the challenge of charting it. But then, the enjoyment continued as I started doing research about the Reims Cathedral (about 90 miles outside of Paris in France) and its labyrinth. I’ve including a great deal of historical information in the pattern.

I stitched this on 32 count Exotic Orchid Zweigart lugana. The black you see is one strand of DMC Etoile in 310 – and I needed 2 skeins. The fillings inside the labyrinth, the border, and the stitch pattern in between were all stitched with Kreinik cord #105C. (This is NOT Kreinik braid – it is a finer metallic thread and pretty easy to stitch with.) This design certainly lends itself to being stitched using any two colors of thread.

Make sure your LNS is registered for Needlework Expo! If you like this pattern, ask them to order it for you!

There is nothing that comforts me more than putting needle and thread to fabric or canvas. I've been stitching since I was a teenager, exploring all types of needlework - cross stitch, canvaswork, counted thread techniques like blackwork and Hardanger...you name it. All these years of stitching have led to my own design business. Most of my designs are cross stitch patterns, but I have also enjoyed creating beginner level canvaswork designs and blackwork patterns as well.
