The Weardale Museum, in Ireshopeburn, County Durham, is promoting the Methodist Tapestries Project, which will show the history and heritage of Methodism via the medium of embroidery. Relating stories not only local to the Museum but those of regional, national and international interest, the Project currently has forty-nine panels at various stages of construction and is looking for volunteers to take on further designs. Images of some of the current panels can be seen on the Museum's website, including in the Gallery section which showcases different panels every few weeks.

As we especially value input and involvement from Methodist communities please contact me if you might be interested in participating in the Methodist Tapestries Project. Contributions of local stories that illustrate Methodist history and heritage are always appreciated, and stitchers will be warmly welcomed; there is no requirement for high level embroidery skills, and a wide variety of stitches and techniques is encouraged.
