Patchwork Cross Stitch Workshop with Manchester Museum 07/10/2012
The first Sunday of October is Grandparents Day. In England not as widely celebrated as Mother or Father's Day, but not at all forgotton at Manchester Museum. I was asked to run a workshop that would allow grandchildren and their grandparents to share a traditional craft actitivity.
 Other workshops on offer included: Make a sock monkey, scrapbooking and print press demonstrations. It was lovely to see generational skills passed down from the elder participants and the children showing them a thing or two in the world of contemporary craft.

 Using cross stitch templates to plan

 This clever one crafted a cross stitched bag!
