Great news – the magnificent British Library is putting on a not-to-be-missed event to celebrate all things needlework! Plus, A Stitch in Time: A Day of Embroidery will also coincide with the exhibition of artist Cornelia Parker’s epic Magna Carta (An Embroidery).

For one day only on Saturday 6th June, there’ll be plenty to see and do! Marvel at Parker’s 13-metre long embroidery, watch expert demonstrations, listen to talks, take a hands-on workshop or masterclass, drop in to the sewing surgery, and browse the market place for stitching goodies.

This special event is aimed at all ages and abilities, so you’ll be sure of a great day discovering and exploring the world of stitch craft.

Find us on Saturday 6th June in the British Library’s Entrance Hall between 11am-5pm GMT, overflowing with cross-stitch goodness. Visit www.bl.uk for more details.
