INJURED city servicemen will be able to enjoy a cosier winter this year thanks to a Fenny Stratford based business.

Threads and Patches is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year by stitching quilts for those injured in conflict.

But this is not the first time business owner Sally White and her team have put their skills to use by providing some warmth to others.

They have previously carried out all night stitching sessions making quilts for women and children in a refuge centre.

Over the last 10 years Sally and her team have taught over 2,000 people to quilt.

Now, MP for Milton Keynes South, Iain Stewart, has thrown his support behind Sally and her team’s efforts.

He was one of 1,200 people who attended the Threads and Patches 10th anniversary exhibition last weekend. He said: “With Remembrance Day coming up in a few weeks’ time, it is really heart-warming to see that our servicemen, to whom we owe a huge debt of gratitude, are getting recognition and appreciation.”

“Threads and Patches have successfully established themselves as a business for the community in Milton Keynes.”
