An exhibition had been held the previous week at St Andrews Centre, Gravesend, and below are some of the exhibits.

This photograph shows a small section of the project we are doing at present - 70273 project - to commemorate those people who were murdered by the Nazis. This will eventually become a quilt, measuring 5' x 8' and will be hung along with 11 others in Rochester Cathedral in January 2108.
This is called 'The Cardinal Quilt' because the birds featured are cardinals - an American bird This piece of embroidery has no name but is worked by Gill Cox. Here is a small selection of pieces of work that were viewed at the exhibition
