It’s finished! The Town Tapestry has been repaired, redesigned and backed in preparation for re-hanging in the Museum. It’s taken at least a year of consistent hard work to achieve this and on Monday 8th August Trish Lovell snipped the last thread!
The textile group will now have to return to is more mundane Monday afternoon activities.
Thanks to everyone, especially Trish Lovell and Mary Waller, who were members of the original tapestry group and to the museum’s textile group of Louise, Dorothy and Janet and in particular Linda Ward whose expertise on the sewing machine proved to be invaluable.
