Throughout the recent lockdown, Amy Chambers has encouraged everyone to use their creative skills to stitch, draw, embroider, paint or print stamp on a square of cotton or lightweight material, to show how they were feeling during these extraordinary times.
Amy having a vision of a beautiful piece of history being made, has been amazed by everyone’s creativity and would like to take this opportunity to say a big “ThankYou” to everyone who has taken the time to do one or more squares for the community Covid19 quilt which, although not as yet finished, is looking great.
Now that the lock down is beginning to ease slightly, a decision has been taken to make Friday 31st July the Last date to submit squares. This will give Local residents, businesses, care homes schools/nurseries, who still wish to contribute their piece of memorabilia to the quilt, the time to sew, paint, print, knit, crochet or draw on a square of any light weight fabric, 15x15cms leaving an internal 1cm border (So working area 14x14cm. These squares will then be sewn into the Community Quilt to complete a piece of memorable history for public display in the community.
To submit your finished square/s Tele: 07713 667855 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
