98. All sewn up

It’s not often you have to get a sewing machine out to mount display work:


These are the dragon curves stitched by Year 5 pupils as part of a Community Gifted and Talented programme I run. I thought that by making them out of fabric and thread they would last longer – hopefully long enough that the Year 5 can see them up in the Maths Department when they join in Year 7. It’s also different to a ‘normal’ display and a bit of a talking point.

The cross stitch fabric makes rather good squared paper. Imagine what you could do with fabric, thread, a bit of creativity and a friendly sewing machine owner.
