THE special relationship between the US and UK was stitched into fabric this week at a special event.

On Tuesday, Thetford Library hosted budding seamsters as part of its Bunting and Banter day, organised by Norfolk Adult Education and Guidance Services.

Participants got creative as they produced bunting with a red, white and blue theme.

Kathryn Boler, community librarian, said the day was part of a Norfolk-wide drive to celebrate the county’s links with North America.

“It’s a chance to make some new friends and the work that was produced was absolutely beautiful,” she said.

A second Bunting and Banter event will be held at the Ancient House Museum on May 17 from 10.30am to 12.30pm. Entry is free.
