Faringdon Tapestry Unveiling

The Faringdon Tapestry is a community project. Started in 2018, the theme of the Tapestry is trade in Faringdon and it showcases the change in trade and commerce throughout history.

The project brought together beginner stitchers as well as those very skilled in cross stitch, tapestry and embroidery. Individual pieces were then sewn together to create an impressive wall hanging. The project was funded by Faringdon Town Council and Vale of White Horse District Council, and sewing supplies were very generously donated by local residents.

The Tapestry was unveiled on the 11th July in the Pump House and an afternoon tea was held to thank the community stitchers for all their hard work. The beautiful piece was unveiled by Faringdon Town Mayor Cllr. Dr Mike Wise and community stitchers Siobhan McElroy and Anna Fletcher. The Faringdon Tapestry is now hung at the entrance of the Faringdon Museum in the Pump House for the community to enjoy.
