100 Hearts

These hearts were stitched by members of Worthing Tuesday Embroiderers Guild, as part of the national Guild project to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the end of the First World War. They were exhibited (along with some of the other 700 contributions) firstly at the Knit and Stitch show, and then around the country in a touring exhibition.
