BIBLE yarns brought to life by church knitters are currently on show in North Yorkshire.

The knitted Bible exhibition, which was started in Hartlepool in 2008 and now stands at 36 woollen table top scenes, is currently being shown in Northallerton.

The exhibition at Northallerton Methodist Church was opened by the town mayor Cllr Phillip Eames on Saturday.

The display was started by members of St George’s United Reformed Church in Hartlepool, who started knitting to create the scene of The Last Supper.
