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…
