We met a number of people at the Knitting & Stitching Show who are interested in coming along to a meeting. If you're one of those - please do join us! We welcome people of all textile disciplines (or dabble in a bit of everything!) of all standards from beginner upwards. We're a 'pay-as-you-go' group so there is no commitment or obligation to come regularly. More information on what and where is found here on the 'About us' page. Or email us via the Contact page
Activities planned for the day include:
exploring the Contemporary Quilt group Suitcase Collection - and an activity thinking about the process of curating.
Phew, what a great 4 days! We had so many interested people through our gallery and very positive feedback. Its really the direct contact with the visitors that has made the whole experience worthwhile. More pictures to follow soon when I've collected together all the images from the show for a gallery. Meanwhile - if you missed the show at Olympia, or you would like to see it again or bring a friend - it is now open at the National Needlework Archive at Greenham near Newbury. Showing until 30th April. Saturday opening on 5th April.
We're counting down to the Knitting & Stitching Show at Olympia
We have a large gallery stand and are getting prepared. On my 'To do' list this week... labels, banners and a huge list of bits and bobs to take with me on the setting up day. Catalogues are ready though and have been printed. They look great, and will be available at the show for £2.
Hope to see you there - 13-16th March.
