The sewing group are getting involved in the Marie Curie 60 years in Woolton celebrations this summer. We are making cushions with the new 60 years logos on to sell at the Marie Curie Summer Fair in July and a quilt for display in the hospice. Other organisations are involved in the celebrations: Woolton in Bloom has already got a special display near the Derby Arms and where the Tommy the WW1 soldier was, near Sainsbury's. As summer bedding comes in we will see more and more yellow featuring in the village. In fact we hear that Woolton is to turn yellow in the month of June!
To prepare for our cushion making and quilting, the sewing group and friends had a trip to Longsight fabric market in Manchester on Wednesday 1st May. We had a lovely lunch on the famous "Curry Mile" in Manchester before bringing our bags full of fabric back to Woolton. Some of the fabrics bought might end up in items for the Lancashire Show in September! Thanks to Margaret who organised the trip!
