Embroiderers’ Guild stitched hearts to commemorate the end of WW1.

Here’s a preview, as featured on BBC South News:

The Embroiderers’ Guild invited their members to take part in the commemoration of the ending of WW1 by stitching 3-dimensional hearts.

The design could depict any aspect of the war from the battlefields, ships, planes, military insignia, war horses to specific events or the experiences of a family member or friend who took part in the war.

The design could include the use of photos, medals, ribbons, braid, buttons, uniform materials, clasps, closed pins, printed materials, and other items from their family’s archives.

12 venues around the country have been chosen to display the hearts and at each venue there will be a different mixture of pieces made by local members.

Come and see these intricate and evocative pieces of work all done in fabric and thread that commemorate this historic event.

The Bucks County Museum display also includes photographic portraits of men and women from Bucks whose lives were affected by the war.
