2019 Exhibitors

Stitched Memories

Would you like to get involved?

Textile artist Tilly Rose would like your help!

I am looking to create a display wall of little stitched patches that will help create a few smiles, lots of chatter and evoke a few treasured memories of times past. You may want to use a theme ie a day out with the family, seaside fish and chips, fruit cake and a cup of tea, Grandad’s garden shed, the smell of summer….or you may want to just add a patch of stitched threads in a rainbow the list goes on…. It is open to ALL abilities.

Do you fancy joining us in making a patch and joining in with the fun?

Requirements – Each patch needs to be 5″ square and can be hand or machine stitched using any type of design you wish. You may even wish to add in other techniques such as quilting, mixed media or embroidery.

The idea is to provoke a memory through colour, pattern, texture, print, or even using found or forgotten objects from days gone by.

Any of the following can be used –

  • All types of cloth – new or vintage
  • Old clothing
  • Old haberdashery items ie. hook & eye
  • Vintage papers
  • Press studs
  • Buttons
  • Lace
  • Ribbon
  • Beads
  • Old quilt pieces
  • Old broken jewellery pieces
  • Yarn snippets
  • Hand stamped cloth
  • Old keys, charms, coins
  • Old tickets, handwriting, postcards etc

If you would like to join in with our display then you can send in a little patch to:

Tilly Rose Stitched Memory Patches
British Quilt and Stitch Village
c/o Nikki Reeves
Uttoxeter Racecourse
ST14 8BD

Patches can also be handed in on the day you visit.

I am hoping to donate all patches to charity after the event to help support the valuable work with dementia patients.
