Contribute to the Mayflower 400 Project

All Day

Stand 50 : Mayflower

Cost To Attend: Free

We are working towards achieving 6000, yes – now 6000! rectangular pennants (NOT triangular) 

The finished size should be A4(210mm x 297mm) or (8.3in x 11.7in)
 
Made of fabric : sewn, appliqued and COLOUR-FAST, as they'll be hung outside for several weeks painted (but make sure this is waterproof – it rains in the Devon)
 
Predominately red, white or blue or any combination of these colours
 
They can be plain or patterned - nautical, stripes, floral, anything you like
 
There is no need to have an image on both sides
 
Ideally backed for robustness (unless the fabric is substantial)
 
The pennants will be machine onto sturdy strapping by others, so no need to provide a hanging method    
 
Why not include an element inspired by the Mayflower Pilgrims or check out the Websites and Social media for ideas? 
 
There will a central drop-off point for both storage and any donated fabrics (old sheets, charity shop finds etc) so contact us at:
