Common Threads

Autumn is nearly upon us and I am still busy working away on 40 Yards for the European Patchwork Meeting which starts on the 18th September. This and a project I have been working on for the Garden Museum in London have just features in an article 'Common Threads' in the current edition of Embroidery Magazine, . This edition also features an article on Rachel Howards  new exhibition Red Works at the Waterside Arts Centre and  an article on textiles in my home city Norwich and lots of other wonderful goodies.


 I am still being sent some lovely pieces for Tea Flora Tales. Each strand of 7-10 individual pieces are getting packed up ready to take with me.


An exhibition  Memory Cloth at the  Lace museum in the Netherlands features the work of 
Cherilyn Martin, Els van Baarle,Cas Holmes, Glenys Mann opens on the 12th October. It is supported by a workshop programme. I am giving a weekend workshop on 13-14 December 2014. (enrollment for this is open and details are in the Dutch language) Contact the museum direct for more information in English) .


I have just returned from teaching the Stirling Summer School for the Embroiderer's Guild, Scottish Region. A fantastic group of students who worked incredibly hard and produced samples and pieces of amazing quality. We needed to extend into the corridor to see be able to review the work properly!

Finally, some Rosebay willowherb growing around the Loch at Stirling.
