The Millennium Embroidery Panels

Home | Spring | Summer | Autumn | Winter

Completed in November 2000, this Ravenstonedale millennium project,involved the creation of 4 embroidered panels to mark the millennium in the parish of Ravenstonedale. Each panel has a distinct theme related to the parish and a secondary seasonal theme. Children attending Ravenstonedale School on January 1st 2000 were invited to write their names and choose their favourite colour. Embroidered copies of these signatures in the chosen colours are included on the boundaries of the panels. The framed panels are kept in each of the 4 current places of worship in the parish. Periodically the panels are exchanged between the chapels.
