Threads through Creation

Jacqui has also just embarked on another huge project 'Threads through Creation'. The exhibition continues the theme of the 'Tree of Life' seen finally in the book of Revelation and imagined in 'Threads through Revelation' - and it is hoped, in future years, that 'Threads through the Cross' might be designed and stitched so there’ll be three huge exhibitions telling the story from Genesis to Revelation - from the beginning of time to the everlasting time.

'Threads through Creation' will consist of 12 huge panels using a slightly style and technique from those used in Revelation, but still with the vibrant colours, beautiful designs and absorbing detail which so many visitors have enjoyed. It is planned to be completed in the spring of 2020.

EXHIBITING THREADS THROUGH CREATION

There will be twelve panels each about 2m wide: they stand one metre away from a wall, and at least three metres is needed in front to allow space to view the pieces. We like to exhibit for a minimum of 6-8 weeks because of the time involved driving to venues and setting up and taking down. As touring costs are high, and we rely solely on the support of the charity ‘New Creations’, we ask for a contribution towards costs. On past experience, we usually find that this project brings in extra visitors, and make a significant contribution to shop sales, as material linked with the exhibitions sell very well.
