The Knit & Stitch Show is on from 21st – 24th November at The Conference Centre in Harrogate. As part of the Textile Bursary Group we are all previous bursary winners of The Textile Society. We have formed a group and are being supported by the society to hold and exhibition each year. The Knit & Stitch Show is our first adventure out with the society.
Wow we were given an amazing space to hold our exhibition. This was due to our founder member Gwyneth Depport who is an amazing negotiator. As a group we are indebted to Gwyneth for her tireless efforts.
I am exhibiting 5 of my Newsfabric series. I was present at the show on the Thursday and was amazed at the quantity of people passing through our stand.
The show was full of excited visitors. The works were able to come alive for the viewers if the artist / makers were present to talk about their work.
I could not stay for the whole weekend due to family commitments.
I was approached by artist and author Julia Triston. She is in the process of writing her second book with Rachel Lombard. Julia is considering including images of my work in their next book Contemporary Applique. Very exciting as you never know where these things will lead.
How To Be Creative in Textile Art is Triston and Lombard’s 1st book and is published by Batsford Books.
