World’s Most Beautiful Bunting – A Free Gift
2nd October 2020
It isn’t every day you get hundreds of talented stitchers together in one place to celebrate a special occasion. In October 2018 we were fortunate enough to hold the 10th Beating Around the Bush needlework convention, and oh! what a magnificent time we had.
To commemorate this significant milestone, which was 29 years in the making, we asked everyone attending to stitch a panel of bunting to send in ahead of time, so we could assemble and display it at the convention.
With no specific brief and working only from a template and piece of fabric that we sent, each recipient was encouraged to simply stitch away.
The results were nothing short of spectacular and created the most magnificent art installation.
When measured end-to-end the finished bunting stretched over 27 meters (88 feet) in length and consisted of 122 exquisitely hand stitched works of art.
It was such a talking point at the convention and represented so much skill, talent and diverse creativity all in one project, we’ve been thinking of ways to share it with our broader needlework community ever since.
In 2020, as many of us have been affected by the cancellation of numerous needlework events the world over, including the postponement of BATB 2020, we thought now would be the perfect time to add a little bunting joy to all our lives.
So, with special thanks to the class of BATB 2018 who contributed the amazing designs and to the Inspirations online team for putting this together, you can now download a PDF file featuring photographs of all 122 panels to enjoy, and the best news is, it’s FREE!
