This is a free event for all, hosted by the diocesan ACW.

Join Susan Purney Mark on a journey of discovery while visiting many of the world’s religions to see how they use fabric, thread and textiles in their rituals, ceremonies and beliefs.  A closer look at the history of our relationship with cloth can bring insight and understanding to all people of faith.
