Keeping Glasgow in Stitches

Malcolm Lochhead, Sandi Kielhmann, Janice Forsyth and Julian Spalding at the unveiling of the first panel in the Keeping Glasgow in Stitches project at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. The photograph appeared in the April 1990 issue of the Glasgow City Council newspaper The Bulletin.

Keeping Glasgow in Stitches was a major community arts project organised by the community sewing project "Needleworks" and Glasgow Museums as part of Glasgow's year as European City of Culture. Twelve banners were created, one for each month of the year, and the designs celebrated various aspects of the people, culture and life of Glasgow. Over 600 people were involved.
