phew.. just back from two ICHF shows, only two weeks apart firstly ‘The Scottish Quilting Show’at the SECC in Glasgow and then the ‘Fashion and Embroidery Show’ at the NEC in Birmingham … I was so busy on the aproach to these shows I didnt get to post any information about them but do put the dates in your diaries for next year …..
The Scottish Quilting Show … at SECC in Glasgow will run … 8-11 March 2018
Fashion and Embroidery Show … at NEC Birmingham will run … 15-18 March 2018
They are actually back to back next year so that will be a test of packing and re-packing! I will be at both shows next year too
But, this year ….
I had a large solo exhibition in Glasgow and I also taught some lovely ladies and gentlemen every day of the show …I taught my workshop ‘Explorng Simple Print’ using funky foam and polystyrene, and I think everyone had great fun, including me. The washing up was a bit of a challenge though with automatic taps in the loos until the lovely Jane Bolsover found me a catering sink .. she really is an amazing mover and shaker…
and all sorts of fun at the NEC two weeks later
this is my demonstrator stand and behind that the ByDesign exhibition titled ‘Smoke and Mirrors’, here are a couple of views
Finally the third stand I was involved in was the Eastleigh College stand … this showed the work from last summers HNC end of first year interim show, four students who are textile based, from this course came with their work … and here are a couple of views
they are Shelly Canning, Me, Irene Belcher and Frances Davison, a great time was had by all … and , finally, all my family came on the sunday and helped take down … those who know us well know that it is quite rare for all of us to get together
that is me, Oli Son, Evelyn Daughter with Granddaughter on board who I ill hopefully meet at the end of June! and last but certainly not least Ben son-in-law
thats it, my whole dynasty so far….
