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!
