ICHF at Excel

Well, had a great day at the show which is only in its second year. Jane Bolsover is in charge and is creating a wonderful pair of shows. Fashion, Embroidery and Stitch at the NEC is now established and this sister show is heading the same way I hope. Watch this space for some exciting stuff coming up in the next couple of years.


I met up with my friend Sophie Fubyere from Paris with her fabulous exhibition.

I heckled the wonderful Consuelo Simpson who was doing a spot of show teaching for the first time

and kind of helped Bobby Britnell on her ‘Hands Up For Uganda’ Artcloth to Barkcloth stand… definitely party time for most of the day
