The Charity Knitting Challenge 2020: Hats 400!

Inspire’s 2020 charity challenge invites you to thread up, cast on and create a warm hat. Can we make 400? Why 400 hats? 2020 marks the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower journey when the pilgrims left Nottinghamshire for America. Let’s knit a hat for every year! #Mayflower400 @PilgrimRoots

 

Virtual Exhibition: Spirit of Mayflower – Language of Sculpture

An exhibition exploring ancestry, macramé knotting and The Mayflower. Artist Rachel Carter has worked with adult and school groups in Nottinghamshire Libraries to create a touring exhibition linked to her family history, the Mayflower story and her own work. The Family Tree’ created for the exhibition using knotted macramé patterns stitched onto fabric is shown alongside family stories from the Mayflower travellers, and Rachel’s Nottinghamshire ancestry. Why not have a go at Macramé using the how to videos.
