Staircase Stitchers - Work Progressing on the Bed Hangings

There was an excellent opportunity on Wednesday to view the work so far on the crewel work bed hangings in Staircase House. As the curtain had to be rolled on to work further up, cameras appeared from many stitchers to capture the full length before it was rolled up on the frame again.

The left hand side of the curtain...

...the middle of the curtain...

...and the right hand side.

The Stitchers (originally funded by Stockport Heritage Trust) have several different projects, which can be viewed on our website.
