Other past group projects have included the Environment panel for the Leeds Millenium Tapestry. The panels were designed by Kate Russell, and our hooked panel was mainly hooked by Margaret Kenny, Isobel Waterhouse and Diane West, although most of the group put in a few loops. Details of all the panels can be seen at www.leedstapestry.org.uk
