Quaker Tapestry Calendar 2021


Quaker Tapestry Calendar 2021

Featuring 12 postcards showing images from the Quaker Tapestry

The Quaker Tapestry Calendar 2021 features twelve popular panels. The accompanying text for each month’s image is taken from Insights into the Quaker Tapestry by Ann Nichols (1922-2017) .  Ann was one of the four teachers who taught the embroidery stitches and techniques to thousands of people.  Ann was a superb storyteller, teacher, enthusiast and ambassador for the Quaker Tapestry. She taught in many different parts of the world for over 30 years, from the early 1980s.  She was also a great peacemaker, gently stepping into the middle of any minor disagreement to bring calm. Ann gave explanations of the story depicted in each panel and often of the stitches used to embroider it.

The 12 panels selected for this 2021 calendar span the lifetime of Quakerism from 1652 with Swarthmoor Hall, which proved to be of great importance for the explosive growth of Quakerism, to the panel about Ecology and Sustainability, which are still views of Quakers today.
Other panels feature different aspects of Quaker work and witness, with themes touching on Education, Peace, Simplicity and Truth, Equality and Social Reform, Science and Sustainability.

The selection of panels was compiled by Quaker Tapestry Museum staff, on behalf of the Publication and Communications Committee.

Calendar size 170mm x 325mm with wiro binding top including hanging hook.
