Embroidering trees Friday evening 27th October 2017

Eight of us met up on Friday evening to sew trees. There was a mix of chatting and comfortable silence. Mary Paulger had spotted this project for us.

Stitch a Tree to show support for refugees.
This project aims to connect communities and individuals across the UK to show support for displaced people around the world. Participants are invited to stitch a tree which will later be arranged into a large embroidery called Forest by artist Alice Kettle. Forest will be displayed at the Whitworth, Manchester, in September 2018 and in progress at City Space Gallery, Winchester Discovery Centre, from 15th October to 26th November 2017.
