Welcome to the Diaspora Tapestry

A project to involve communities around the world in the celebration of Scottish heritage and culture.

Scots have migrated all over the world and have often had a profound impact on the areas where they settled. This project will see 25 such communities documenting their Scottish connections on a series of embroidered panels. Their combined stories will pay homage to the incredible determination and courage of Scots over the centuries.

Diaspora WorkersWe will have the pleasure of meeting with and listening to several ladies from Scotland tell us about the wonderful tapestry, The Scottish Diaspora. “Diaspora” is the dispersion of any people from their original homeland. That is exactly what happened to many Scots especially in the 18th and 19th Century. This tapestry will honor Scots all over the world.
