Stitching in the Sun with Manna House

The Museum of Lakeland Life & Industry has some lovely needlework in its collection. This Wednesday, we ran an embroidery workshop at Manna House as part of their Skills Cafe. There were a few needleworkers in the group, but for many it was their first stab at creative stitching. Learning as they went, the group built up a colourful combination of stitches. Everyone went away with a framed piece of embroidery and we all enjoyed spending the day taking it one stitch at a time. We’re looking forward to creating more crafts inspired by MOLLI’s collection. Get in touch with Shannon Quigley if you’re interested in bringing a creative workshop to your local community group!
