Reading Lockdown Quilt needs you.

Reading Lockdown Quilt  is now transforming into a fabric tapestry.

Calling all sewers, knitters, quilters, stitchers, and anyone interested in learning how to sew. We're looking for volunteers across Reading to help cut, iron, sew, stitch, applique, cut and design our fabric quilt. 

Over the coming months, we'll be stitching the quilt together. As part of the Quilt team, you'll be invited to sew in teams, individually, over zoom and face to face (all socially distanced). This is your chance to meet other volunteers, learn how to sew, learn about quilting techniques, and create a beautiful chronicle of Reading during lockdown.

We especially welcome fabric patches and technical help from sewers, knitters, weavers, textile artists and community groups across Reading. 

If you would like to be part of the project but are not sure what to do next, contact Amy at quilt@risingsun-artscentre.co.uk or phone Larry on 07765 599 433.
