Someone in GN mentioned this tapestry a while ago - we are in our campervan near Fishguard and so went to see it today. What a delight! A long tapestry, in the style of the Bayeux Tapestry, sewn by local women. The person designing it - Elizabeth Cramp - obviously had a great sense of humour! If you’re ever in Fishguard, West Wales, it’s worth a visit (in a room above the Tourist Information)

Thank you for this 🙂 I asked Anniebach who Jemima Fawr was and she told us the story. Very interesting to see the pictures.

It really is beautifully done! I bought a postcard of Jemima Nicholas - she looks a character!
