Marvel at the spectacular stitching in Threads through Creation, a breath-taking exhibition of twelve enormous, embroidered silk panels that explore the story of Creation.

It’s the work of acclaimed textile artist Jacqui Parkinson. She has spent three years stitching away on this project, and it is touring twenty cathedrals nationwide into 2024.

They’re eye-catching and attractive, and enjoyable for viewers of all ages. Inspired by the creation story at the start of the Bible, she used a vibrant combination of layers of silk, hand-dyed materials, metallic leathers and gold leaf, miles of thread – and more than eight million stitches!
