In September I visited Lincoln, Nebraska and, with help from staff at the IQSC, worked on a stitch project with three local middle schools where large numbers of refugee families are “settled”.

This recent signature cloth marks the centenary of the death of Emily Wilding Davison at the Epsom Derby in June 1913 and pays homage to the banner on display in the Museum of London, made up of the sewn signatures of suffragettes imprisoned in Holloway in 1911. It is part of the www.100deeds.co.uk.
See my Remembering Emily post for background information. This cloth was part of the Wilding Festival on the 15th June at St George’s in Bloomsbury where Emily’s memorial service had been held. It was carried in the procession by her descendent and draped in the church where her coffin had stood 100 years ago. Thanks to Sarah Evans @ artwithaheart
A collaborative project with groups in Blackpool, made as a wedding gift for Prince William and Kate Middleton in 2011. As much as celebration of Blackpool and its people as the royal event, the quilt brought many disparate people together in the making
The finished work will be displayed in the cafe of Touchstones Gallery from the 15th June for 2 weeks.
Working on the Hepworth project, over the last six months, a collaboration with poet Shamshad Khan and a group of women in the Falinge area of Rochdale is so interesting. As ever the catalyst is a creative collaboration, but the outcomes in terms of discussions and sharing are so varied and wonderful. Our cloth and poems are shown in the cafe of Touchstones Gallery from 15th June.
