40th Anniversary Exhibition

September 2019

Members have started working on their pieces for an exhibition to celebrate our 40th Anniversary.

One of our members, Helen Winthorpe Kendrick, has drawn out the design to enable separate elements to be identified and worked individually by other members of Darlington Branch. Once complete it will represent a stitched image of the theatre in 2019. All of our members have finished stitching their individual panels and the next stage is to put them all together.


National Day of Stitch

22nd June 2019

This year we are hoping to stitch in the Hippodrome Theatre where our 40th anniversary exhibition will be held later in the year. More details to follow.

Making Charitable Items

Tie Bags

We have already donated tie bags which are used to store patients valuables during their stay in hospital which have been received gratefully and received a lovely thank you. The lady who runs the project has sent our branch 56 more ties which have been donated so we can continue to make these little bags to brighten up a patient's stay in hospital. Our branch members continue to use their talents and contribute their time to make more tie bags for this good cause.

Our talented members have been at it again helping make items for charitable organisations after making tray cloths for St Theresa's Hospice. More recently our branch have made twiddle muffs for Alzheimer suffers and also wiggly bags to hold Hickman lines for children who are undergoing cancer treatment. We are always looking for new projects in order to help our wider community.

Outreach

Mount Pleasant School

Our members have once again excelled themselves in helping the talented children of Mount Pleasant School to produce a second panel for the World's Longest Embroidery. Another school in Newton Aycliffe has shown interest in producing a panel so hopefully our members will be able to start one with them in the summer term.

See out Facebook page for some pictures of how well they got on.
