Reading Room kneeler stitched by Dorothy Cernik
Reading Room kneeler stitched
by Dorothy Cernik
The group began stitched kneelers for the Church in 1993 under the direction of Jenny Overson and Annette Guppy. Later the work was organized by Margaret Reardon, Mary Nash and Sheila Oakey. Very many people have contributed their skill, including all the children who were at Helmdon School when the Noah's Ark set was started.

From 1999 a photographic record (available to look at in the church) was made by Ron and Annette Guppy, with the names of stitchers and explanations of some of the designs. John Roberts and Sue Lidgley photographed the kneelers for the album.

The group worked exceedingly hard to have the choir kneelers in place in the church before the Millennium, with work finally finishing in 2001.

The group meets fortnightly for individual needlecraft projects, but will still undertake commissioned work in the form of seat cushions, incorporating wools kindly donated by Miss Thornicroft, who has moved to Brackley.
