Here at Rejig Towers we are very busy getting everything prepared for the Festival of Thrift – it’s 2 weeks and counting………
Our drop-in sewing workshops will be taking place in St Cuthbert’s Church on the Kirkleatham Festival site
St Cuthbert’s will be throwing open their doors and celebrating the Festival of Thrift throughout the weekend. There’ll be drop in activities from Rosi Thornton and the REJIG team who will be making a giant quilt. Bring a piece of fabric to add or choose something from the Rejig buckets of colour – the Rejig volunteers will assist stitchers, so visitors can ‘make one and take one’ blocks of any shape and size to add to the quilt then start their own patchwork adventure when they go home. Hand and machine embroiderers will embellish blocks with stitching garden and growing motifs.
It is very easy for anyone of any age to join in with….Come and help the Festival Of Thrift quilt grow!
Breathe in the stunning floral displays inside and outside the church and see the newly refurbished grade 1 listed mausoleum.
Children will enjoy the special exploration quiz and there are delicious refreshments too.
Mouthful will bring members of the Festival’s Phoenix Choir who will be lifting their voices, mashing traditional and new tunes.
