A Dash of Paint...

As promised here are some photos from our recent Free Machine & Painting Workshop...

It was a wonderful day with twelve students eager to learn and then thrilled at the results a layer of paint can add to a piece of work (may have some converts to painting). Thank you ladies for allowing us to share your work.

It was also a sad day as this was our last workshop and Carolyn couldn't be present as her daughter was in hospital after a traffic accident. But I am pleased to say that Rebecca is back home and I'm sure along with me you send her your best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Thank you from both of us for the support we have been given, its been a pleasure to share our passion for textiles and stitch with you all and we have enjoyed making new friends along the way. We will keep our flickr and our blog open so we can post any news of future adventures.

We hope you all continue to enjoy your creative journey.

Best wishes Sue & Carolyn x

Stitched Art Exhibition...

Carolyn and myself along with ten other textile artists are busy preparing ourselves for this...

Sat 20th Sept - Fri 26th Sept

We have over a hundred pieces to show, so it should be a wonderful exhibition. Two members of the group will be there each day to chat with and answer any questions. I will be there on the Tuesday with Margaret from 10am - 4pm.
Heartlands is a wonderful venue with free entry to the museum and exhibition, a very good cafe and childrens play area.

Visit http://textilemaids.blogspot.co.uk/ to see some of the work that will be exhibited and read the design processes.

Hope to see you there

Saints at the Cathedral...

This afternoon I was stewarding at Truro Cathedral for the Saints of Cornish Churches Exhibition and as promised I've taken a few snaps to share with you. Hopefully I've got most of the quilts, but I couldn't make a note of the makers, but you will see most have their Saints names on them.

There was a section of the cathedral that was closed off, but how could I resist this floor, so I managed to poke my camera through the gates.

And finally here is our piece, you will find a description of the process in a previous blog...

St. Enoder

There was a steady stream of visitors throughout the afternoon and the comments books is full of praise for the exhibition and the amount of work involved by the makers.

Back soon
