A "stitch in time," or time to check out some stitches? Explore samples of the Cathedral's needlework on a close-up tour. More than 1,500 pieces of needlework—kneelers, seat cushions, and more—can be found throughout the Cathedral, portraying historic Americans, floral patterns, baby animals, and Christian symbols.
