Maps at Embroiderers' Guild

Monday, 30 July 2012

At Embroiderers' Guild at the weekend we had a practical session led by the co-chair Hilary entitled "What is a map?" 

She talked a bit about maps and showed some of her projects, then explained what she had prepared for us to do.

Painstakingly, Hilary had looked up our home addresses in the A to Z and traced a square of map around where we live. We then had to transfer this to a piece of fabric with tacking stitches and fill it in using tapestry wool and chain stitch.

They will all be sewn together and displayed at the Leeds Flower, Vegetable & Craft Show this weekend.
