Birmingham Postcards

Guild members have recently completed a project to stitch postcards representing aspects of Birmingham. These were given to the then Lady Mayoress, Gillian Gregory, and were originally intended to hang in HMS Dearing, Birmingham's naval ship. Unfortunately the finished hanging was a bit too big for the available space, however the Lady Mayoress has secured them hanging space within the Council House itself, so Birmingham residents will be able to go and enjoy these very diverse examples of embroidery.


For more details about the project, see this Birmingham Mail article.
