The row over the decision to bring the Great Tapestry of Scotland to Tweedbank is heating up.
There are now more than 1000 signatures on a petition against the Scottish Borders Council's plans to spend millions housing the tapestry.
The council claims the Tapestry, which is 143 metres long and was stitched by over 1000 volunteers, will bring tourists to the area.
More than 100,000 visitors have already viewed it throughout its tour of Scotland, and the Council hopes that people will use the Borders Railway to come and see it in Tweedbank.
However opponents are arguing that the £3.5 million bill is too big a price to pay.
A petition against the plans states:
They are also questioning the choice to place it in Tweedbank, as opposed to a textile-based town in the Borders.
However, the Council says it is confident in its decision, claiming the investment is long term, and that the new building will be put to good use in the coming years.
