Falkirk group’s quilt project brings people together
A unique sewing project is bringing together women of all nationalities to make a ‘peace quilt’.
Running on Mondays from 10am- noon, the multi-cultural group offers an opportunity for those taking part to ‘sew and socialise’.So far that’s included people from Namibia, South Africa, Germany, Pakistan, Libya, Lebanon, Nigeria, Poland and Romania as well as Scotland.
Using only scraps of white, pure cotton fabric, the quiltmaking project run by Falkirk Sewing Studio, in Callendar Square, is also a place where women can practice and improve their English.
It is particularly aimed at women who are socially isolated and there is a free creche so that children are always welcome to come along. (Article as in Falkirk Herald).
