High Peak Community Arts

Artist Amanda Whewell has created a lovely project with High Peak Community Arts in NW Derbyshire in which everyone is embroidering calico pieces inspired by the idea The Ugly Bug Ball which the community is  making into a quilt for Reuben’s Retreat in Glossop, the centre for children with life limiting conditions and their families. 

They are using a simple running stitch, kantha style, which some participants  learnt, when they made an altar cloth for St. George’s Church in New Mills.  Participants have received instructions, needles and thread in the post – and already some are completed!  They have already had over 40 completed embroidery pieces, which are viewable online.
