I finished the commission I was working on.
I have been meeting with the Reveal group members and doing some sketch book work around my ideas in readiness for our joint exhibition at Farfield Mill in September. It is a joy to be part of such an enthusiastic and dedicated group. We decided on an exhibition title of "Unfolding Stories" and it is interesting to see how we have all differently interpreted that theme. The ideas and work are all coming together and we are all looking forward to it. We hope to have our own dedicated website up and running in time for the exhibition.
I am also a member of the Society of Designer Craftsmen (Hallam Group) and am exhibiting with them at the Clocktower Gallery at the Sheffield Northern General Hospital next week. The Preview evening is on 24th February from 6pm to 8 pm. Come and join us if you live over that way.
Just yesterday I was at the Embroiderers' Guild Lincoln Group who had been kind enough to invite me to talk to them and give a mini workshop in the afternoon. I thoroughly enjoyed the day and met some wonderful people. It is great that there are so many textile enthusiasts out there.
On top of all that, I am trying to get everything ready to go to the Creative Stitch Show in Glasgow from 3rd - 6th February where I have been invited to exhibit and demonstrate my work. Not been to Glasgow before other than to pass through so should be interesting to spend a little time there.
So you see it has been a little busy so far this year with preparations and organising and general business all round. I shall though try and be a little more diligent at keeping this blog up to date in future.......
Happy Valentines Day!
