Calling all those who enjoy sewing or embroidery, or like getting together with like-minded people – Goole Museum needs people to come along to the first meeting of the Inclesmoor Map Embroidery Project on 10 October from 10am to 12 noon.
The Inclesmoor Map is a 600 year old map of this area held at the National Archives and is their oldest map. Museum volunteers are creating an exhibition for 2019 based on the Inclesmoor Map.
Curator Debbie Hardy said : “We want to create a new version of the map to display as part of the exhibition – think Bayeux tapestry, but not on so large a scale. Could you help us?
“Come along to the meeting and have a cuppa while Jill Hall of the Selby Embroiderers Guild talks you through the project. All materials will be provided and at this session participants will get the opportunity to practice the stitches that will be used and discuss the project.
“Even if you haven’t done anything like this before but fancy having a go, please do come along. Throughout the project we will have regular get-togethers to stitch as a group and talk about progress, alongside a cuppa and a biscuit – or two!”
This is a chance to be part of this exciting project and bring a new piece of textile art to life.
Goole Museum is located in Carlisle Street, Goole, DN14 5DS (telephone number: 01405 768963).
The opening hours are: Tuesday to Friday 10am to 5pm, Wednesday 10am to 7pm, Saturday 9am to 4pm. Closed for lunch 12 noon to 12.30pm (Wednesdays 1.30 to 2pm).
