An Embroiderers’ Tale

Members of the Embroiderers’ Guild in the Gloucester area worked together with members of the WI on a project to illustrate the history of the RAF in the county.

It coincided with the centenary of the RAF on 1st April 2018. The project leaders, Sandra Gee and Pat Coupe, told the story of the project in a book – RAF 100, The Gloucester Centenary Tapestry, An Embroiderers’ Tale.

This new E-book gives you a wonderful insight into this project. The whole story is told in the printed version available from Pat Coupe. (patcoupe@gmail.com).
