The Plymouth Tapestry is an heirloom embroidery commissioned by Pilgrim Hall Museum for Plymouth’s 400th anniversary commemoration. It is being created by artist Elizabeth Creeden and group of volunteer stitchers in a multi-year undertaking. Consisting of twenty 6-ft. long panels or “chapters,” the Plymouth Tapestry tells the story of early Plymouth, focusing on the experiences of the English settlers who arrived on the Mayflower and the Wampanoag families who inhabited the region for millennia before their arrival. Museum Director Donna Curtin describes how the project came to be, how the Tapestry is being made, and shares images and film clips of this remarkable masterwork-in-the-making, including the ten six-ft. long embroidered panels completed to date.
