|Bunting buzz at The Galleries
The Galleries Shopping Centre is launching a bunting buzz and want shoppers to join in!
On Saturday 1 June, the shopping centre are launching their own sewing bee – inviting shoppers to join in and sew their very own bunting flag! The triangles will be sewn together and the bunting will be displayed around the centre during the summer!
The Galleries are providing all the materials, fabric, templates and sewing machines for shoppers to join in and be part of the centre’s summer bunting project. Assistants will be on hand to offer help and advice too.
Richard Paxton, centre director of The Galleries commented “The Galleries will be buzzing with the sound of sewing machines, with our shoppers joining us to create a huge piece of bunting to decorate the centre for summer. We have draped 360 meters of blue and white bunting around the centre to support Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup Final, so we will need lots of bunting triangles to be sewn!”
Shoppers will little or no experience of using sewing machines along with more experienced sewers are all invited to join in!
Shoppers over the age of 12 are invited to take part in the free bunting buzz. Further information is available at www.gallerieswigan.co.uk.
The Galleries sewing bee have organised other events in centre, details of which will be announced shortly.
