Manchester Bee Heart - 4x4 hoop
To commemorate all who have been caught up in the terrible tragedy at the Manchester Arena, England.
Please use these designs in their memory.
During the Industrial Revolution, the worker bee was adopted as a motif for the city. It represented the hard work of it's people and the fact that the city was a hive of activity. Today it can be seen throughout the city, on pavements, mosaics, bins and seven bees are even included in the crest of the city's arms. In the last few days it has been seen as a symbol of unity, respect and remembrance.

The Manchester bee is available separately or now incorporated into a heart.
The heart can be turned with no exposed seams, which requires a small amount of hand stitching to close the gap. Alternatively use the raw edge version, leaving the edges on view. Both versions are contained in the download. Instructions included
