You may have heard us talk about Lorina Bulwer, we have one of her beautifully stitched scrolls in our collection that she made during her life at the workhouse.
Mary Frances Heaton has a similar story and also used sewing to craft her story…
Working with Stitched-up-theatre, we invite you to share your story through our reflective project Stitch Your Story inspired by the life and embroidered words of Mary Frances Heaton.
The project begins on the 5th of May and will run until July. If you miss the first one or two, don’t worry, we’d still love to have you at our weekly meet-ups! These sessions will initially take place via Zoom.
For more info and to get involved email: [email protected]
We want everyone to enjoy this project, you don’t have to be an expert with a needle and thread! If you need any help with materials, please let Jessica know in your email.
