About the Neighbourly Quilt Programme 2012

Area residents are being asked to represent the idea of neighborliness or something they love about
Walthamstow on a fabric square that will become part of the 2012 Significant Seams Community quilt: The E17 Neighbourly Quilt. They will be able to use any number of textile traditions or practices, and learn new ones from one of a number of workshops we will be hosting (minimum 6, a possible 20). You do not need to attend a workshop to contribute a patch.

Patches will be created by: area artists, craft clubs, community organisations , children, and other residents.The completed quilt will feature in the 2012 E17 Art Trail.

This Quilt will be created from volunteer participation, positivity, creativity, and community . It will be coordinated by Significant Seams and its partners. Costs will be funded by sponsorship support from good citizen businesses and organisations, ward funding, and sales of community quilt sewing kits.
