We want to provide an opportunity for residents and those associated with St Botolph’s to show their connection with and friendship towards our village and parish church.
To do this, we are creating a lasting testimony of people living in Aspley Guise, or connected to the village or church in the year 2020 by making a beautiful community memory quilt from canvas
‘bricks’ all embroidered with local family names. This will be displayed in St Botolph’s Church. If you want to be included please buy a ‘brick’.
‘Bricks’ cost £10 for a blank - you create and make your own design.
For £25, the Church Craft Group will stitch your ‘brick’ with your family name.
Our aim is to collect all the ‘bricks’ by June 2020 and to complete the hanging by Christmas.
To purchase a brick (with instructions) please contact:
Brenda Eagles phone 01908 582945 email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Gay Marks phone 01908 582801 email: email@example.com
Liz Armitage phone 01908 584473 email: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you want to join in the project and help to make the quilt, the St Botolph’s Craft Group meets every Tuesday afternoon. Please ask Brenda, Gay or Liz for details.
All proceeds will go towards the upkeep of the fabric of the Church. Check back on this page regularly for updates.
