Staffordshire Millenium Embroideries
Marvel at the unique representation of a thousand years of Staffordshire's history, intricately embroidered in silk, wool, cotton, metallic thread and leather, with one panel for each century of the Millennium. This inspired work was lovingly created solely by Mrs Sylvia Everitt of Rawnsley, near Cannock, who hand-crafted these detailed embroideries over five years of dedicated and meticulous work as her gift to the people of Staffordshire in commemoration of the Millennium. Sylvia toured the county for several years giving lectures about her vibrant embroideries before donating them to the Lichfield Heritage Centre where they are now permanently displayed in a specially designed Gallery. For her work Sylvia was awarded the MBE in 2002.
