At our recent review by the Museum Accreditation Scheme we have maintained the status of Full Accreditation!

Museums Accreditation Scheme

We want all museums to be sustainable, focused and trusted organisations, which offer their visitors a great experience. The Accreditation Scheme sets out nationally-agreed standards, which inspire the confidence of the public and funding and governing bodies. It enables museums to assess their current performance, as well as supporting them to plan and develop their services.

Our award of full Accreditation is valid for three years.

This museum status is vital to our work here. We couldn’t have achieved it without the hard work and support of our volunteers

One example of this is our Care and Conservation team, which go a long way to helping us to achieve this high standard. Thank you very much for all that you do!

The Museums Scheme The Collections Trust offers us all sorts of helpful advice with our collections work.

Volunteering at the Quaker Tapestry is a very rewarding experience. Meet new people, have fun, share your knowledge, learn new skills, make new friends, take on a challenge and share the fascinating stories within the Quaker Tapestry.

The Quaker Tapestry offers a great scope of work. Our team of staff and volunteers are involved in sharing a variety of tasks – everyday is different!

Our volunteers are vital to the success of the Quaker Tapestry, giving their time, commitment, expertise and dedication each year.

“An extraordinary history starting in the Lake District in 1652, founding banks, chocolate companies, building railways, establishing Pennsylvania, chatting with Russian Czars and Turkish Sultans.”

Who would have thought Quakers would be so interesting!
