Bunting!

Bunting triangles are well underway to decorate our village for the Jubilee weekend celebrations in June. Jacqui’s ambitious goal is to have enough bunting to go all around Bernards’ Place, up the High Street and down Back Lane with cotton flags – no flapping plastic!

Regardless of age or gender, if you can help by:

  • donating fabric (cotton or poly cotton)
  • cutting out,
  • sewing or
  • turning the triangles the right way out & ironing them

Please contact Jacqui Sewell on 01308 867145. Jacqui is also holding Bunting Workshops at the Post Office on2nd Friday of every month – there’s fabric to take away to cut out the triangles (template provided, cut out triangles etc …..

Bunting For Jubilee 2022

Can you help make the 2022 Platinum Jubilee Weekend really special for Broadwindsor?

Village resident, Parish Councillor and member of Broadwindsor Fun Group, Jacqui Sewell is at the helm of our village’s Bunting Project for our Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations next June.

Jacqui, who is known to be proficient with her sewing machine skills through her work at local craft fairs and with Dawn Newberry at Dorset Designers on Facebook, has this request:

Will you help me make fabric bunting as it would have been in the 1950’s, not noisy plastic flags flapping in the breeze? I want to recycle – repurpose – reuse as much as possible!

  • Do you have any cotton fabric (flowers, abstract, plain) that you could donate?
  • Are you able to cut out triangles (template provided)?
  • Or could you fix the triangles onto the tape ready for sewing?
  • Perhaps you could sew up the triangles?

If you can help in any way please telephone me on 01308 867145. I’m also starting monthly Bunting Workshops at the Post Office on 2nd Friday of every month beginning on 14th January 2022

Drimpton’s Bunting Bonanza

A colourful and commemorative idea from Drimpton promoting Village Community:

At some point we will emerge from Lockdown and once again be able to come together as a community. In anticipation of that, three ladies in Drimpton are planning to celebrate by decorating Drimpton with bunting made by the village.
So if you’re looking for something to while away a bit of time, why not tap into your creative juices and design one or more flags to represent you, your family, 2020, Drimpton, or anything else you fancy!
It can be drawn, painted, sewn, knitted (pattern below) glued, appliquéd or anything else you can think of – the choice is yours. There are no rules apart from the size (a triangle measuring 20cm x 30cm).
They hope to be able to have a coffee morning in March (restrictions permitting) where you can bring along your completed bunting flags. They’ll then take them away and stitch them together to create the commemorative village bunting that will be a lasting reminder of these extraordinary times for years to come.
