On a beautiful summer Saturday in June, Scottish quilters ‘stitched the pitch’ at Hampden Park in Glasgow.

Ann Hill, Alzheimer Scotland’s quilter-in-residence, had responded to a challenge and, as a result, more than 5,000 quilts were laid out on the world-famous footballing surface.

Quilters from across the Borders helped – and are still helping. Many of these 5,000 quilts remain to be sold – raising much-needed funds for Alzheimer Scotland.

Locally, there will be a sale at 1 Tower Street, Selkirk – one of the town’s newly-established Pop-up shops. Most of the handmade quilts measure approximately one square metre and come with a certificate which states that the purchaser has helped in this massive fundraising project.

The special one-day sale, organised by Souter Quilters, will take place on November 8.
