Stitched Textiles

Common Threads Indigo Quilts

In January 2014 Christ Church Cathedral unveiled a set of 26 quilts created as part of an 18 month long community art project. The project was co-lead by Thomas Roach and Sheila Wex.

Prayers of the Church Community Art Project

Between January and September 2016, Thomas led a team of 60+ parishioners in a community art project to create and  permanently install 230 screen-printed, stitched and embroidered textile panels in Christ Church Cathedral's west alcove. The project connects prayer with hand-work.
