A wonderful weekend at the ICHF show. I was involved in four different stands so I didn’t get out into the show much, it was very busy every day. I managed to get out to do a bit of shopping and meet up with some old friends. this is the Fashion, Embroidery and Stitch show which is now held alongside Hobbycrafts and Sewing for Pleasure.
ByDesign had their Marginal exhibition, do go to our website where I expect there will be pics soon, http://www.bydesigntextiles.co.uk.
My summer 2013 graduates from the Foundation Degree Stitched textiles had their own stand in the college section. They are going to be exhibiting at the autumn Knit and Stitch shows under the name Marks and Stitch. I am really looking forward to seeing their next body of work now that they are ex students.
Bobby Britnell had an exhibition of children’s shoes. she is involved with supporting a village in Uganda and Janet Middleton has made pairs of children’s shoes from barkcloth that lots of us have decorated for the charity, do go to the website to see more. http://www.handsupforuganda.org . there were 120 tiny pairs of shoes, a wonderful display which will also be at the EXCEL show next weekend , sister show to the nec one
Finally, I had a demonstration stand where I had a lot of fun printing from bits and pieces from a dismantled sewing machine!
here are some pics of the college stand and my demonstrator stand
