Local textile group Stitch ‘n’ Time has created some special ‘global’ themed bunting for SCOREscotland.
The bunting was created when SCOREscotland decided they wanted something special to decorate the Corn Exchange at their upcoming West Edinburgh Inter-cultural celebration. The final design for the bunting has a world map split into different sections with “welcome” stitched in to it. Stitch ‘n’ Time felt that this kept with the multicultural theme and would fit well at the event on the 30 January 2016.
Stitch ‘n’ Time, which is based at the WHALE Arts Centre have created a series of textile displays for local organisations. After finding out about Dads Rock and seeing the work they do, Stitch ‘n’ Time decided they wanted to support the group and working with the West Edinburgh Timebank created a Princess and the Pea display to help with story telling sessions. They have also worked with Clovenstone House, the Calders Community Garden and some of the childrens’ groups at WHALE.
Strengthening Communities for Race Equality Scotland (SCOREscotland) is a voluntary organisation serving the minority ethnic communities in the West of Edinburgh.
