Patchwork Day

Patchwork quilt

Our new piece of patchwork is growing as news of our project spreads. People are invited to collect a template and create a rosette using material special to them to make a new piece of patchwork for the collection made 70 years after our patchwork quilt was rescued from the rubble of one of the cottages destroyed in the Sherborne Bombing Raid.

Patchwork day

Patchworh Day in August was led by Pascale Taylor and her mother Sue, who is Chairman of Sherborne Museum Association and attracted a large number of visitors who were keen to learn how to make a rosette for the new piece of patchwork.
