It was bustling with visitors and the exhibits looked great: very well balanced and a lively, interesting collection of textiles to admire. We had fun spotting pieces by people that we knew and I saw my own contributions (labelled in the photos below, with other contributors' work appearing in some of the photos).
The Spinners and Weavers' section had some gorgeous fabrics, yarns and threads available to buy, and there were also raffle tickets on sale in two of the areas.
The thread that links my pieces is that they all contain recycled/upcycled textiles, such as old clothing, curtain linings, bed sheets, etc.
Individual members each sew one row for each of the five projects and one person from the group completes the piece. These pieces were made by:-
- Margaret Weal
- Julia Walton
- June Drennan
- Joan Elliot
- Ann Hill
