  • Edinburgh Castle - Mary's Rooms - Mary's first contact with embroidery and needlework was while growing up in France. Later, as she returned to Scotland to rule, she would sit at her Council's meetings listening and learn the Scottish ways while embroidering. But this period of her life was too taken up by duties and trying to please her people as well as dealing with the various feuds around her, for her to really spend a lot of time with needlework. During her period of imprisonment at Lochleven, although she had the time to take up this pastime, she lacked the material which was grudgingly and parsimoniously sent to her. Therefore, it was not until her captivity in England that her major works were created.
