Sitting Comfortably at Moat Brae

This week members of Dumfries and District Embroiderers’ Guild dropped by Moat Brae, the National Centre for Children’s Literature and Storytelling, with very welcome reading cushions designed not just to have young visitors sitting comfortably but also stimulating them to tell stories of their own.

Wendy Jones, creative learning and engagement  officer for schools at Moat Brae, was delighted with the donation of the cushions saying, ‘These are beautiful props in their own right but also make for very portable seating allowing a storytelling session to be set up anywhere in the house.’

Visitors from Playworks Nursery were on hand to try the cushions out and immediately gave their approval as they sat down for an impromptu storytelling session.

This is not the first donation from the Embroiderers’ Guild. Last year Margot McIntyre, Guild member and winner of the national Broderers’ Award 2019, donated a wall hanging of Jack’s Beanstalk , which is now on permanent display in Moat Brae.
