I should like to remind Friends of the great potential of the Quaker Tapestry for outreach
  • At the recent exhibition in Chester Cathedral, when thirty-nine panels were on display in a prime position, some 12,500 visits were made by members of the public – the highest ever in a period of four weeks
  • The brilliantly lit new display with Quaker quotations and facts about our work and witness drew many people to stand for minutes studying it
  • One day a dignitary of the cathedral came and spoke to a group of us (stewards) – just after he had been officiating at Communion – and said there had been fifteen people there – normally there were just seven! This was because the communicants were also visiting our exhibition
  • He said how delighted they were to host the Tapestry
  • Hundreds of Quaker leaflets were taken away, and we stewards were able to have some deep conversations about Quakerism with visitors
