In November 2020 we sent out a call to anyone who enjoyed sewing. We asked if anyone would be interested in creating a Ryedale Carers Support Quilt. The idea being to create a quilt which embodied what 2020 meant to those living in Ryedale.

We had a great response with 20 ladies taking up the challenge, there was a wide range of experience and skill level but most importantly everyone was very keen to give it a go. Our talented and creative Quilters created a total of 36 squares, each square a personal story of what 2020 meant for them. Everyone’s square is very unique with lots of different quilting techniques being used, from patch work, applique, felting and embroidery. There’s just so much to see.

Ryedale Carers Support would like to say a huge ‘Thank you’ to everyone who took part and especially to Pat Thompson who took on the massive task of sewing all the squares together to create the fantastic Quilt wall hangings.

The overriding message is one of hope and resilience in a time of great uncertainty. The quilt and this booklet will be a reminder to all of us that working together on a shared project is the greatest tonic.
