Scottish Diaspora Tapestry: Canadian Content

November 9, 2021 - November 28, 2021

For a limited time only, 38 Canadian panels from the Scottish Diaspora Tapestry will be on display at the Civic Museum. The installation includes panels dedicated to the City of Guelph and to Lt. Col. John McCrae.

The Scottish Diaspora Tapestry was initiated in 2014 to engage communities around the globe in celebration of Scottish heritage and culture. The tapestry, in its entirety, is made up of over 300 embroidered panels, featuring the people and places which connect Scotland to its global diaspora. Artist Andrew Crummy created the outline for the linen panels, which were then embroidered by hundreds of stitchers in their own communities, using unique techniques and colours.
