Australian Quaker Narrative Embroidery Project

The Australian Quaker Narrative Embroidery Project is a collection of embroidered panels designed to tell the story of The Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) in Australia, through stitch.

The panels depict the history of Quakers in Australia from Sydney Parkinson on the ship Endeavour in 1770 to the present.

The panels have been designed and stitched by different groups and individuals from Quaker Meetings around Australia, with some contributions by members of community embroidery groups.

The exhibition is part of the celebrations marking the 400th Anniversary of George Fox’s birth, one of the founders of Quakerism in Britain.

This exhibition is being hosted at NSW Parliament by Alex Greenwich MP, the Member for Sydney.

3–26 April 2024.
Fountain Court, NSW Parliament House, Macquarie St, Sydney.
Monday to Friday, 9 am to 5 pm.

    Is there a website, or some other way of seeing images of the Australian Quaker Narrative Embroidery Project in the other states? I am in WA with no opportunity to get to NSW to see it.
