The Guild will be walking with their own banner in Processions in London on 10 June and you can join us to celebrate women gaining the vote 100 years ago.
The banner was designed by the textile artist Alison Garner who was involved in the design and making of the Magna Carta Quilts. The banner has been made and decorated with help from Quilters’ Guild members. Many of us were able to add our cross at the conference and enjoyed discussing what the right to vote means to us.
Members can join us in London by registering at www.processions.co.uk and emailing firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can keep you up to date with a members meeting point. For more information go to the Processions page on the Guild website.
PROCESSIONS will continue whatever the weather so please do come appropriately prepared for the conditions on the day. You will be given a green, white or violet scarf to wear to create the coloured stripes in the PROCESSION. You will need to arrive in ample time to collect your scarf.
This is your opportunity to join thousands of women to form four epic PROCESSIONS in the four political capitals of the UK – Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh and London. We invite Guild members to join individuals of all ages and backgrounds coming together across the UK to create four living portraits of women today. Join us as we walk with the banners, pennants and flags that have been made to express the lives, ideas and hopes of women in the 21st century.
