Stitching a Welcome to the Athletes of the World

The Embroiderer's Guild offered its 197 branches round the British Isles a challenge to embroider postcards towards an traveling exhibition which is taking place around Britain during the Olympic Games. Each branch was given a country that would be competing in the Games and our was Mauritius.  Over 2916 postcards were on display at the 2012 AGM in Southport. It was incredible to see them all hanging together. There was every technique and just too many to take in all at once. At present they are in Tyne and Ware until July 11th, Plymouth from 16th July - 29th, London Aug 2 - Sept 22nd, Bromsgrove Oct 8th - Nov 4th so if anyone is anywhere near any of these places go and see them.  You can not help but be impressed. This was our contribution.
