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.
If you loved the Bats….wait there is more.
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!
