Short film about a St Ives tapestry/embroidery group which created 42 textile panels mapping the buildings and businesses in St Ives harbour from the lifeboat house to the end of Smeaton's Pier. They are shown along with footage of the actual buildings of the time.

Selected Reviews
The video was developed with considered editing, providing a combination of the embroidery and the real locations that inspired the work. The combination of these with visitors of a public exhibition of the work provide a look into how the work was presented and a little sneak peek into the visitor’s experience.

The film makes a clear connection between participatory textile practice, people and place.
