24th July 2021 The ‘July Jamboree Event’ report (formerly Regional Summer Day)

On Saturday 24th July 2021, the ‘Stitch Together Group’ held a ‘July Jamboree Event’ afternoon talk by Zoom on ‘Historical pockets and their social history’. This was a relaxed session of stitch and chat, sharing skills and a little textile social history.
The historical pockets are now in the process of being created will be based on those of the 16th-18th Century worn by women either under their skirts or outside their garments, tied around the waist and often beautifully stitched or decorated with applique. Watch this
space for photographs at some stage of the finished pockets!
