Anyone passing through Romsey in the next couple of months should swing into Rums Eg and have a look at the exhibition there. It is also a chance to see some of my work as I have been lucky enough to have several of my pieces selected for the exhibition.

Will post some photographs of what has gone up as soon as I have then

Busy

20131011-150005.jpg

Having a great time at the Knitting and Stitching Show and have met lots of lovely people.


Countdown Time

It is now just over a week before the Knitting and Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace and my preparations are all but complete. I have been hugely busy because not only do I have a place in the Graduate Showcase, I also still have my usual stand which will for the first time be stocked with naturally dyed items. Alongside a selection of threads,fabrics and other supplies, I will be selling a number of finished items.

These include scarves, T Shirts, journals, sewing rolls and a whole host of other things. As previously mentioned I am sharing this space this year with Alison Hulme. Please come and see us – our stand number is TGB13. Its on the far left hand corner as you enter the Textile Gallery. It is generally less frenetic in that corner and there is a coffee stand nearby so a great place loiter.

I should really mention other collegues, friends and tutors that will also be present at the Show. I am joined in the Graduate Showcase by Janet Steer

Our former tutors Sue Chapman and Terrie Hitchcock will be reprising their exhibition from the Festival of Quilts – Evidence of Bodies. For those who have already seen, it will be worth returning for another look since there will be new work on show.

Last but definitely not least my good friend Lindsay Taylor has a stand and will be signing her new book – Embroidered Art. She is to be found on stand RCE11. She has promised me she is going to dress her stand up to the nines so well worth a look if not to buy. This is a link to her website
