Staircase Stitchers Work on Display

Beautiful Embroidery Now on Show to the Public!

After four years of stitching, the crewel work bed hangings, bedcover and monochrome pillow cases are finally gracing the replica 17th century bed (donated by the Trust) in Staircase House.

The Mayor of Stoockport cut a ribbon across the bed chamber doorway, allowing the public to finally view the intricate work in situ.

The hangings and bedding will remain in place for you to view at any time.
The stitchers are diligently continuing with their work to produce 4 more hangings for the bed, and other beautiful items to add that 'lived-in' feel to Staircase House.
