News: Weavers’ work recognised by a Lady and a Queen.
The Weavers’ Workshop recently received thanks from both an eleventh century noblewoman and a twenty-first century queen.
Lady Godiva, embodied by Pru Poretta, presented the Weavers with a Certificate of Appreciation for their contribution to the tapestry depicting Coventry’s history. The presentation ceremony for all the contributors to the tapestry was held at St Osburgs Hall.
The tapestry – all of it – is currently on display at St John’s Church on Spon Street. It is best to check ahead before making a special visit as it will have to be moved before the church is decorated for Christmas as it is where they display the Nativity scene.
The Weavers also received a card from Buckingham Palace thanking them for the card they created for HRH Queen Elizabeth’s 90th birthday.
