Of Earth and Sky

Museum Street



by Jessica Hilton


The thread that weaves its way through the centuries
from my ancestors first working the Lancashire soil
reaching me and my needle in the present day.

From farming and the mills up to weekend-hobby-makers
Creating, providing and furnishing our lives.

A truth passed down through the generations –
to make with your hands is to leave your mark on the world.
