Some Things never Change

The Knitting and Stitching Show is nearly upon us and I shall be travelling to London for the first show at Alexandra Palace next week. I am helping to install the 62 Group of Textile Artists’ ‘Package Tour’ exhibition and will also be on our Stand TGJ3 on Thursday afternoon.

My work ‘Some Things never Change’ can be seen in the exhibition. For more information about this work click on the “Some Things Never Change’ link above.

I am looking forward to seeing how fellow members of the group have risen to the challenge of fitting their work within a box of a set size. As I usually present my own work on a stretcher and sometimes frame it I decided to make my work as a hanging and roll it up to make it fit into the box.

It will be great to meet lots of new people at the show and there will be the opportunity to buy the 62 Group book, RADICAL THREAD, on the stand at a special Knitting and Stitching Show promotional price of £15 which is a saving of £4.50 on the recommended retail price. The book which celebrates our 50th Anniversary, is a great read.

7 STRANDS TEXTILE SYMPOSIUM

Well it’s been a mad couple of weeks getting ready for the Rijswijk Textile Bienniel in the Netherlands. Making sure my work was all prepared,frames retouched and then getting the work packed. Making the boxes was an event of its own! Cutting,taping, joining 2 together for the big pieces and then getting it sent to the Rijswijk Museum in the Netherlands. It arrived in 2 days. Good old DHL Express,fantastic service. 
In amongst all that I found out I had been successful with my Arts Council bid for the 7 Strands at the Minster Textile Symposium and Exhibition so then it was all hell let loose.
Leaflets to be prepared , the website to update, site visits, etc,etc. I feel like I have had no sleep for the last fortnight. Still it will be worth it when it all comes together. 
For more information about the Symposium and Exhibition please visit : 7 Strands
The tickets will be available to buy online from Sue Stone or at Gate Gallery by 26 May 2011.
Please book early to secure your place as tickets are strictly limited.
It’s a real privilege to bring artists of this calibre to my hometown. The Textile Symposium will be a first for Grimsby and we deserve to see the work of National and International artists in this area.The artists Helen Banzhaf , Lucy Brown, Dorothy Ann Daly, Ann Goddard, Christine Gornowicz , Tilleke Schwarz and myself, are all members of the 62 group of textile artists. This event must surely encourage a wider audience and a greater appreciation of Textiles as an art form.
