The Big Sew In

Little Amal will have walked 8000 km from the border of Syria to reach Manchester by November 3rd 2021

As part of Amal’s epic journey she has been welcomed by many people and events along her route.

Acts of welcome have been staged and some of these acts have been the presentation of skirts made by refugee and arts communities along the route.

The UK skirt to present is a patchwork skirt made from almost 400 embroidered and appliquéd patches depicting and in the colours of flowers from the British Isles.

These patches have been made by people all over the UK and now we have to sew them into a skirt to present to Little Amal as an act of welcome, organised and co-ordinated by John Scott at John Scott’s sewing world and Annie Symons Costume designer through Good chance theatre company and The Walk.

We have one day to do this. Will you join us?

WE need 20 volunteers to give 3 hours of their time on Sunday 24th October 12 -15: sewer

If you can bring your own machine it would really help! 5 OTHER GENERAL HELPERS.
