A GROUP of talented seamstresses will show off their impressive work at an upcoming exhibition.

Hartlepool’s Foggy Furze Quilters and Embroiders will raise money for the Great North Air Ambulance in the display of more than 200 examples of their skills.

Around 50 quilts of varying sizes will feature in the exhibition at Seaton Carew’s Marine Hotel later this month.

Many of the items carry a First World War theme in recognition of its upcoming centenary has been weaved into many of the exhibits.

Lorna Scott, of the group, said: “Quite a few of the quilts and embroidery feature poppies on them and also of the bombardment of Hartlepool.”

The exhibition takes place on Friday, May 16 and Saturday, May 17, and is open to the public from 10am-5pm.

Entry is free and proceeds from a tombola and raffles will go to the Great North Air Ambulance.

The group meet twice a week at Seaton Carew Social Club.

They used to meet at Foggy Furze Library, but moved when it closed.

On Mondays members get to work on patchworks, while embroidery is the subject of meetings on a Thursday.

Both classes meet from 2pm-4pm and new members are welcome.
