Where has April gone?

April 28th

We've been a bit quiet on the blog front recently, possibly due to us all being heads down with needles in hand! Or making the most of the sunshine in the garden, even if it is cold!
At the beginning of the month three of us had a jolly at Westpoint, to see a selection of work from our previous exhibition, Stitched Art,  with a few new additions, on display at the Spring Quilt Festival. We overheard some lovely comments, and also appreciated others' work on show. Plus of course had chance to purchase those essentials from the traders, you understand how we all needed to buy some more fabric!

Mid month saw some of us together again for a lovely sunny morning of coffee, cake, chat and the odd stitch or two thrown in! It's really good to see how each other's work makes progress. And helpful suggestions from a friend can help resolve a piece that might not be going quite as well as intended!

Then yesterday we all met up at our regular meeting, when it felt like things are really coming together for our next exhibition, Cornwall. Collected. showing at the Poly, Falmouth, from September 12th to 16th 2016.  As always multiple techniques are in use, and the tables were covered by felt, scrim and velvet, sheers and beads, stitched painted wallpaper, rusty fabrics, trapunto quilting, finest of hand stitching, and machines zipping along. I haven't any photos of work in progress, but the theme of this new exhibition covers Cornwall from Tamar to toe!

We'd love to see you in Falmouth, so do pop along if you can!

Bye for now,
