Knitting and Stitching Show London

IMG_20170307_085957_032-1   20171014_104616  We created a quiet calm space for our Quinary exhibition at the London show.  We had some wonderful visitors and  extraordinary comments about the work. All new work this show now moves on to Harrogate.  Our next challenge awaits us – we have work to make for the wonderful Coventry Cathedral in the spring of 2018.  I am challenging myself with some tapestry weaving and hand stitch.

This exhibition is on tour and will be visiting London, Bath and Edinburgh. An exciting variety of work, this collection demonstrates the sensitivity of the group to cloth and stitch.  Come and visit us on Stand number TG4

inspiration

Inspiration is there all the time.

For everyone whose mind is not clouded over with thoughts, whether they realise it or not …

Inspiration is pervasive but not a power.

It is a peaceful thing.

It is a consolation even to plants and animals. ( Agnes Martin)

 

I am reading Agnes Martin Her Life and Art.

Weaving

I have begun to look at weaving as a means of stitching.  Comparisons can be made whilst making. I  am really enjoying learning a new skill and the contemplative nature of the weaving, much like running stitch.
