The Pilgrim Embroideries - Made in Retford by Jenny King.

The book charts the making of the Pilgrim Embroideries to commemorate the Mayflower 400 celebrations. The five large, detailed embroideries have been designed and embroidered by Jenny King and a small group of local needlewomen known as The Pilgrim Embroiderers.

The book explains the processes undertaken and the embroidery stitches used, and it especially highlights the development of community involvement and friendships made during the two year construction from idea to completion.

The embroideries are to be donated to the churches that can be found along the Pilgrim Trail in North Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire.
