A Celtic cross design is being worked in cross-stitch including a number of Berwick churches and the date of their foundation.

Other motifs include iconic local landmarks and other events and topics of local significance in the Berwick area.

It has been important for the stitching team that topics recognise the ordinary lives of Berwick people, not just the significant battles and political changes.

The next public drop-in workshop where people can place a stitch is at The Maltings from 10.30am to 2.30pm on June 27.
