British Prisoner of War Cross Stitch

Created from salvedge and pinched yarn from an old pullover the Major Casdagli managed to cross stitch this wonderful piece of rebellious textiles; had the true message been found by his captors the soldiers life could have been in jeopardy. A wonderful example of gentle resistance – who says textiles can’t be radical and rebellious!

Picnic in the Park success!

Super Crochet Girl would just like to say a huge thank you to everyone who helped to make Picnic in the Park on Saturday a lovely day! It really was amazing, thanks to everyone for their contributions to the project and thanks to everyone at Charnwood arts for making it possible.


p.s the birds have remained in Charnwood Museum so if you didn’t get chance to see them on Saturday you can still pop down and see them, and if you ask the lovely staff at the Museum they’ll be able to give you an activity sheet so that you can make sure you find all the birds and their messages. Happy hunting!
