Welcome Panel

The Welcome Panel was the first piece of the Tapestry to be stitched, and was designed to encapsulate much of what the Tapestry represents. The faces of Scotland's communities and the hands of its people reach out to all points of the compass, to all the continents of the globe: as explorers or administrators, warriors or artists, sportsmen or builders.

The panel was stitched by the Tapestry's co-ordinators, Gillian Hart and Yvonne Murphy.
