This fantastic tapestry of Camberley town centre was worked by members of Camberley WI. Following production of the background squares by the wider WI membership, it has taken over a year for the 24 ladies of the craft group to knit, crochet, weave and felt the individual items and then sew them all together.  The result is a detailed representation of the town and surrounding area, populated with people, flora and fauna.

Following its unveiling by the Mayor of Surrey Heath and although not displayed at the Federation’s Annual Council Meeting in March as planned, it will form part of a larger display of other Knit Your Town projects at Wonderwool in South Wales, before finally being displayed in Camberley Library and the town’s Heritage Centre.
