Shortlisted in Festival of Quilts 2020 – well done Maggie Pearson!
Stunned to have been shortlisted in the Contemporary Quilt category of the Festival of Quilts which is virtual this year.
My entry “Stronger Together” was made entirely with upcycled/recycled linen, disused identity badge lanyards and natural dyes. Our individual, community and global identities are increasingly fragmented, defining “in” and”out” groups, often defined by an identity lanyard.
But, in the words of Walter Payton “we are stronger together than we are alone” and in the words of the English MP Jo Cox who was assassinated during the UK EU Referendum in 2016 “we have more in common than that which divides us”.
Thanks to all those who found me lanyards! 😊 — at by Maggie . Naturally.

It was National Stitch Day 2019 on Saturday 22nd June and Vicky, Hilary, Liz, Karen, Brenda and Dilys met up in the magnificent setting of the Great Hall in Speke Hall, Liverpool for an afternoon of stitch. Brenda brought the Endeavour cloak and we had our MEG banner as examples of stitch. We were working on the slips for our ongoing Tudor Speke project. Visitors showed a lot of interest in our work and some had a go at some stitching. Photos available to view, just click here…
