Welcome to the Quaker Tapestry
77 panels, 15 years, 4,000 people, 15 countries - come on in!
Have a look at our Virtual Tour on The Museum page…. Journey through the Quaker influence on the modern world: explore the industrial revolution, developments in science and medicine, astronomy, the abolition of slavery, social reform, and ecology; and delight in the detail of the stunning needlework and the craftsmanship involved in its creation.
The 77 vibrant embroidered panels were made by 4,000 men, women and children from 15 countries between 1981 and 1996 (over 40 panels are on display at Kendal).
If you have the chance to visit our Quaker Tapestry Museum in Kendal you can also admire the Georgian Meeting House, which celebrated its 200th anniversary in 2016.
