NI Big Sock is a community participation project encouraging people to learn the skill of English paper piecing and contribute to the creation of a world record breaking patchwork Christmas stocking. Pamela has planned, coordinated and delivered the project since inception.

Pamela has had the dedication to share and develop her craft skill and to support others in their involvement in the NI Big Sock project consistently over the past year. She has visited over a dozen voluntary groups, held over 30 pop up workshops at craft events and public venues, coordinated her team of volunteers and managed the logistics and communication of a major, ongoing, voluntary arts campaign.
