Maggie Waker wrote this poem ‘My heart has an extra chamber’ and also attended the textile workshops to interpret her work in stitch.

All work is 75cm x 23 cm, we should have 11 of these pieces to stitch together to make one long piece to be exhibited.

Arc stitched words

Participants at Arc have been interpreting some of the written ‘Stockport is……’ sentences in stitch to contribute to their large textile piece. They are producing different words using  varied textile techniques, here are some photos of the reverse applique work so far.
