This exhibition showcases the four large hand stitched panels of the Manitoulin Circle Project.
These panels are made from recycled linen damask table linens and other re-purposed domestic textiles.

The artist acted as a volunteer artist in residence at the Little Current United church every Thursday for four years and invited the community to help with hand stitching these pieces.

Also on display is Not to Know But To Go On, the daily stitch journal of Judy Martin where she used a complete skein of embroidery floss each day to couch found fabric to artist canvas.  The resulting river of time is approximately 200 feet long and 15" wide.
