The Community Trafalgar Sail Project

The National Museum of the Royal Navy, located in the historic dockyard in Portsmouth, have engaged the community in some great creative projects over the last few years. I blogged about a knitted seascape¬†previously and now they are embarking on another great task. The museum are asking people to embroider, applique and quilt squares inspired by the fore-top sail from the Victory, which dates all the way back to Trafalgar and is on display at the museum. These 6 x 6 inch squares will be sewn together into a new sail, which will be a wonderful mix of techniques and colours. I’m looking forward to stitching some squares and seeing the finished work!
