Salisbury embroidery


Artist: Mid-Wessex Branch of the Embroiderers Guild
Location: Outside Springs restaurant, Level 2 corridor, SDH North

The Salisbury City wall hanging was designed and worked by members of the Mid-Wessex Branch of the Embroiderers Guild between 1990-1992. It was originally created for the new hospital development reception area, but has since been relocated outside Springs restaurant in a purpose built protective case. Twenty-three members were involved in making the quilt and they met regularly at Manor House, Wilton over 18 months. Meg McConnell was Design Co-ordinator and Tutor. The names of other the participants and a description of the techniques are listed in this downloadable artwork guide.
