The Quaker Tapestry Museum Kendal

The Quaker Tapestry Museum Kendal

The Friends Meeting House is situated just off the river between New Road and Stramongate.

It is one of Britain’s largest Quaker meeting houses in Britain.

Built in 1886, the exhibition covers 350 years of social history and Quaker stories brought to life in more than 40 vibrant embroidered panels.

This extraordinary achievement was undertaken by 4000 men, women and children from 15 countries between 1981 and 1996.
