Display of Canvaswork Cushions...

St George's Church, Eastergate
St George's Church, Eastergate

Tuesday 5th & Wednesday 6th November 2013

Chichester Cathedral

9.30am - 4.30pm

Free Entry.  All are Welcome.

A set of 36 cushions for the Prebendary Canons' stalls will be on display in the Cathedral.  These cushions have been designed and sewn by members of the Seffrid Guild, the Cathedral's embroidery group.  Each cushion is associated with the origins of the Prebends and many depict churches across the Diocese.  You will see an enormous variety of stitches and a clever blending of wools, giving each one its individuality.  The cushions will be dedicated on Thursday 7th November at 3pm and will be in use for Evensong that day.

The Seffrid Guild is named after Seffrid II, Bishop from 1180 - 1204, who had the task of repairing the Cathedral after the fire in 1187.
