Stanwick Stitchers’ wall hanging goes on display

A year long project to create a wildlife tapestry celebrating the flora and fauna has been given pride of place in a country park.

Super sewing Stanwick Stitchers spent twelve months creating a wildlife wall hanging which is now on display in the visitor centre at Stanwick Lakes.

Indigenous wildlife seen at the nature reserve feature in the intricately stitched artwork.

Depicted are some of more colourful inhabitants of the lakes, woods and grassland, from the ever popular kingfishers and butterflies to the less glamorous trees and fungi.

The Stanwick Stitchers meet informally once a month in the visitor centre at Stanwick Lakes to stitch and chat over coffee and cake.

New members are always welcome whether an experienced stitcher who can to share ideas and company while they stitch, or a beginner who would like help, hints or tips.

No need to book, the group meet at 10.30am on the third Friday of the month, except when in the school holidays.

Anyone wanting more information or to join the Stanwick Stitcher should call Pauline on 01933 229817.

Stanwick Lakes hosts a variety of craft events throughout the year including a monthly Craft Café, Let’s Get Knitting Project, Craft Workshops and Art Exhibitions. To find out more, visit or call 01933 625522.
