Vancouver Tapestry ...
Fort Vancouver Tapestry, Fort Vancouver National Trust, August 21-27, 2017, seen August 24, 2017.

Panels ...
According to the "FortVancouverTapestry.com" website (2017), the Vancouver Tapestry is made up of 70 individual panels varying from four inches wide to 36 inches wide. The tapestry measures 28 inches high by 108 feet long with the base fabric being 100% Belgian linen and the yarns being 100% woolen threads. There are 111 colored yarns and eight custom dyed flesh tone yarns, many of which were blended together to produce over 40 additional shades of color. Metallic threads from Vancouver's sister city of Joyo, Japan, have also been used. The tapestry was conceived, designed, and drawn by Eleanor Van de Water and Sherry Mowatt. Fifty-seven local stitchers and 12 visiting Joyo stitchers spent 100,000 hours and six years working on the tapestry. It was finished in 2005.
