Stitch-in-time-for-Easter-Ross-Lifeboat-Station

Byline: Easter Ross Fundraiser Pat Richardson, an avid member of the Easter Ross Fundraising Branch for over 10 years, put her thinking cap on to come up with something unique to help the Invergordon Lifeboat Station celebrate their 40th Anniversary.
Page Content: With
visits to the station and the last branch meeting inspiring her with the
pictures on the crew room wall, Pat had an idea.

 

Made
from 100% cotton with embroidery embellishments, measuring roughly 5 feet by 6
feet Pat had created a masterpiece.

 

An
outstanding cotton quilt, of the Invergordon Trent Class Lifeboat ‘Douglas
Aikman Smith’ at sea, initially taken from a picture she had seen on the
wall. 

The finished
piece was unveiled at the Easter Ross Fundraising Branch AGM on 5th
February, with taking 8 weeks to complete, the quilt received a warm welcome by
all members of the Fundraising Branch.

Invergordon Lifeboat
Station and Fundraising Press Officer Michael MacDonald said, ”The talent and
effort Pat has put into this project, is simply staggering and with so much
detail and all hand sewn this deserves all the recognition it can get and would
like this opportunity to thank Pat for all her hard work over the 8 weeks it
took to create”

 

Pat now
from Alness was born on Poole Quay, just along the road from where the RNLI
College & Headquarters is situated 77 years ago so the RNLI was something,
which she always had an interest in, often doing crafted knitting to help raise
funds over the years.
