Stitch Story

Class: Adventurers Year: 2021 - 2022

Stitch story is an ambitious new project, to bring together 15,000 Tewkesbury residents in one wonderful new community embroidery. We invite you to take part and add your handiwork and history to this impressive fabric piece, over 8 metres in length alongside some of the more well-known events in thread!

Tewkesbury local and talented textiles artist Jo Teague is leading all the workshops and is looking forward to bringing local stories to life:

"There is so much more to Tewkesbury than the historical headlines. The workshops and drop-in session will give people the opportunity to share their Tewkesbury and leave stitches and stories for generations to come!”

The newly appointed Community Engagement Producer, Megan Dunford, is working with all the partners in the Tewkesbury Culture Network to bring people together through this Heritage Lottery Funded Project:

“What’s great is it’s for absolutely everyone. You don’t have to have ever picked up a needle to get involved. The embroidery is a huge part of it, but so are the stories. The workshops and drop-in sessions will all be free, and we aim to pop up with our needles and thread in all sorts of places in Tewkesbury and surrounding villages!”
