#Cannock #Embroidery

Hello Dear Reader

As you know I am a fairly busy lass, but I try to make time to do things that I enjoy.  A few weeks back my wonderful friend Di suggested that we go and see a tapestry in Cannock. She was very enthusiastic about it  so I got my diary out and found a date.

The Tapestry/Embroidery was created by Chadsmoor Tapestry Group, who meet at Chadsmoor Methodist Church.  It was started many moons ago to create a piece for the Church to represent the many groups that meet there.

From there the group decided to re-cover the seats. The church as far as Methodist Churches go is more ornate than ususal. For a start there is some beautiful stained glass.

The group took the theme of creation and following it they produced this. I apologise that my photos really do not do their beauty justice.

My favourite is the Octopus! I love it!

So from there they recieved a commission to produce a piece to hang in the Cannock Council Offices, Civic Suite. The piece represents the local area and is a beautiful work of art.

The Embroidery can be viewed Monday-Friday, roughly office hours, at the Council Offices please telephone 01543 462621 for more details.

The Cannock Tapestry group meet on a Wednesday evening. They are having an Open Day at the Church on Saturday 29th June.

The group is very friendly and I enjoyed talking to them about their work as well as spending time admiring it!

Blessings! 😀
