Two of our Tarland Tapestry stitchers have just returned from New Lanark where they took part in discussions with Andrew Crummy(designer of the Great Tapestry of Scotland) Dorie Wilkie (organiser of 1000 stitcher who stitched The Great Tapestry) and other stitchers involved in their own tapestries from other parts of Scotland. The aim is, in the future, to create a Tapestry Trail throughout Scotland.The Great Tapestry is on display there at the moment and well worth a visit. The Mill buildings are in a wonderful setting by the Clyde. We showed our own tapestry and it was well received even though there is lots more to stitch before completion... We stitch in the McRobert Hall on a Monday afternoon and everyone is welcome to come and see us there. ... See MoreSee Less
