A Stitch in Time

7 Dec

Over the last couple of months I have had the pleasure to work with members from the Avenue Craft Group and Crumpsall Craft Crewe to create two textile wallhangings entitled A Stitch in Time. The brief was to incorporate and showcase the many different types of textile crafting techniques and stitches that the members utilise, whilst also depicting local and well loved landmarks, both historic and modern.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with the groups and as well as learning much more about their local areas, was thoroughly impressed by the skill and stitching expertise of the group members. The resulting colourful wall hangers (that can be displayed seperately, or together) are not only eye catching, they also encourage the viewer (whatever their age!) to look closely to spot all the flora&fauna on display and also to see if the local landmarks in Heaton park and Boggart Hole Clough can be spotted.

My Desk Now (see My Desk Before on this board)  Little French chair with Cole & Son's fab geometric wallpaper   This is Flossie - she's a curvy, sassy flapper girl, who loves dancing at Palm Court and smoking cigarettes from holders (in my imagination of course)  Beautiful rare French chair upholstered in Designers Guild Royal Collection fabrics; we call her The Duchess as she's rather very grand.  Bloke's hunting scene room-set (but the wife got involved and made him have silk curtains)  The design area

On another note, I have just starting a new Patchwork and Quilting series at Beetlefelt studios.
