Threads of Creation

Bath Abbey

January 7th to March 19th 2023

Spectacular textile art at Bath Abbey: eight million stitches to create the world! 


˜Threads through Creation” is an astonishing textile art exhibition showing at Bath Abbey from 7th January to 19th March.  It’s a real treat for anyone in the applied arts, textile art and sewing.   

The show is touring twenty cathedrals, and consists of twelve beautiful huge silk panels re-imagining the story of Creation from the bible.

You’ll find the huge scale, vibrant colours, complex designs and spectacular stitching truly breath-taking. Some of the panels are quite abstract, others figurative.

The panels are extraordinary at 2.7m high and from 1.5m to nearly 4m wide.  It’s one of the largest textile art projects by a single artist, ever.   It took textile artist Jacqui Parkinson three years – and eight million stitches.
