Liverpool Womens Hospital twinned with Birmingham Womens Hospital on 21st-22nd June 2014 to run a 110 mile cycle ride to each others hospitals as a joint fund-raising effort. Merseyside YE with YE Leader Val Heron were asked to embroider a pennant which would be presented on arrival at Birmingham. Below you can see the riders before they set off for Birmingham, with the Lord Mayor of Liverpool Erica Kemp and our pennant, which featured a Liver Bird on a bike.
David Peglar would like some more embroiderers to join his Ecclesiastical Workshop which is held in the Embroidery Studio, Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral each Monday. No pay, unfortunately, but plenty of tea and biscuits, while you embroider vestments for the Clergy under David’s guidance. If you are interested contact Vicky at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will pass a message to David. We have recently visited the Studio and assembled a folder of the Vestments etc which have been created there. You can have a look on OTHER EXHIBITIONS page……

Sreepur Quilt 2014 “Birds”
A Drop Fell on the Apple Tree –
Another — on the Roof –
A Half a Dozen kissed the Eaves –
And made the Gables laugh –
A few went out to help the Brook
That went to help the Sea –
Myself Conjectured were they Pearls –
What Necklace could be –
The Dust replaced, in Hoisted Roads –
The Birds jocoser sung –
The Sunshine threw his Hat away –
The Bushes — spangles flung –
The Breezes brought dejected Lutes –
And bathed them in the Glee –
Then Orient showed a single Flag,
And signed the Fete away –
Emily Dickinson 1830-1886
