Shakespeare Exhibition.

We were asked by Art with a Heart if we could provide some needlework to help them commemorate the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare's death.
As there was not much notice it was decided that small pieces of work containing quotations from his plays would be very appropriate.
The following pictures were taken from the exhibition at their new premises, opposite the bus station in Altrincham.
A few were too high on the wall for suitable photos to be taken.

Our last exhibition was held in Altringham, at the premises of 

"Art with a Heart" which is a charity whose aim is to raise  awareness of the Arts and Heritage in the local community.

It was not possible to include photographs of all the work because of poor light in some parts, and too many reflections in the glass of others. so apologies to those whose work is missing.




This is a detail from the piece above

Our turquoise squares were much admired

Art with a Heart were the impetus behind the planters running the length of the main shopping street. In conjunction with this, members embroidered flowers on a six inch green square, to be hung as a panel. These were also very much admired.

Below are some of the squares.
