 Nearly 3000 embroidered postcard-sized images depicting the life and times of over two hundred countries have been created since 2010. The talk was a sneak preview to the exhibition '25 Years in Stitches' by the Isle of Man Branch of the Embroiderers' Guild. The exhibition is a display of the stitched postcards and the chance to stitch on the Word's Longest Embroidery. You can meet the embroiderers and have a go on Sunday afternoons. Entry to the exhibition is free and is running from 5th - 28th February at the Isle Gallery, Tynwald Mills, for more information ring 801751.
