I bought 2 copies of this book. There is a beautiful hardback book which I believe shows every panel but this book, by Susan Mansfield and Alistair Moffat, is the making of the tapestry.
One copy is a Christmas present for a friend, a Scottish needlewoman herself and the other copy is my treat to
I wondered is any gransnetters worked on the tapestry? I've seen parts of the Quaker tapestry when it was 'on tour' here and would love to see this one.

I thought the Quaker tapestry was/is in Kendal . Where is the Scottish one ? In the Edinburgh Parliament?

Hi Stansgran yes the Quaker tapestry is in Kendal but a few years ago some of it's panels were on show at Norwich Cathedral which is where I saw them. The Scottish tapestry is in the Scottish Parliament.
