Kneeler Gallery



This is a free website established with two ambitions:

  • to celebrate and record the thousands of church kneelers designed and made by congregations across England and Wales – see the GALLERY; and
  • to encourage other congregations to follow their example – see the shortcuts above


 Creating kneelers that are LOCAL, ORIGINAL and UNIQUE is

  • simple
  • cheap and
  • immensely enjoyable.

Only one qualification is necessary – your stitchers ought to be able to count to ten.  (But if this is asking too much, even this isn’t essential – see ORGANISING.)

Church kneelers that are local, original and unique represent the most widely practised form of folk art in the country and are among the glories of the Anglican church.
