Scotland can be very proud of the Great Scottish Tapestry ! We have visited several venues for it , but my favourite is at the Scottish Parliament building. Well done to all the dedicated volunteer stitchers of the tapestry, and to the volunteer stewards, conservators and all others who help to keep the tapestry in first class condition.

This was excellent very well stitched in corona logical order of the history of Scotland each piece was of a Pacific time in history numbered so you can start from number 1 to the end this will take you some time to get round them all I suggest you have a coffee in the middle and take you time on each piece.
enjoy

This exhibition has moved around Scotland and is in Kirkcaldy until 20th Sept then moves to Inverness.
Make sure you allow lots of time as this work of art and design needs your full attention. The story of Scotland in stitches is an amazing history and the attention to detail is incredible. Well done all those involved.
I plan to go back again and would like to visit when it reaches it's permanent home in the borders. I would like to see the project continue and be added to over time to continue the story.

This tapestry must be seen first-hand to appreciate the skills, talents devotion & pride of the hundreds of stitchers across Scotland who worked in small groups to produce this mammoth community arts project. We viewed this tapestry on 24th August, 2015, on display currently in Kirkcaldy Library, Fife. I believe it will be touring around Scotland on display. Do not miss the chance to admire the tapestry, it is a work of love. It is free to view.

I saw the tapestry when it was on display at the Scottish Parliament and it was amazing, a really nice way to display the history of Scotland.
