Earlier group pieces of work

This is a huge wall panel to be seen at the entrance to the Royal Bolton Hospital. It was created to commemorate the closing of the Bolton Royal Hospital. Individual slips were completed by members and then stitched together .
Details of the crewel work piece.Quite a challenge to keep track of it as it was passed amongst our members.

Our crewel work fire screen was designed for and now found in Smithills Hall Museum

The banner is made of small off white squares, mounted on a blue background showing a wide range of embroidery techniques.

Details of the tablecloth. Members were asked to use the flower theme on any shade of green fabric.

A small exhibition at New Chapel {the oldest in Bolton} showing our tablecloth and welcome banner. You can also see that we had earlier had a BUG competition.

This is work in progress .....for our Rainbow Squares. We finally completed 5 strips that were exhibited at Manchester Central {GMex} , Quarry Bank Museum and our NW Regional AGM.
