Stitches in Time

Denise North, Chairman of Burnley Historical Society,  entertained us with her illustrated talk on the contribution of needle and threads in recording historical events.

She explained different styles of stitchery and then took us on a journey from The Bayeux Tapestry,through to more recent times showing how world events had been illustrated by embroidery hangings, collage and tapestry.  

She showed us photos of her own  works of art, many of which were linked to her travels abroad.

Finally, there were items from Denise’s collection on display to view.
