Exhibition time

It's that time of the year again. My students are busy completing projects, stitching on bindings, adding sleeves etc.
We are exhibiting at a different venue this year, Avoncroft Arts Centre in Bromsgrove and we will be open all day Saturday and Sunday instead of Friday afternoon and Saturday. Ineke Berlyn's students will also be exhibiting their work so there should be lots to see plus traders, demonstrations and  our popular book tombola. Refreshments are included in the entrance price and there are always lots of yummy homemade cakes to choose from.
We are raising money this year for the local Bromsgrove Basement Project which supports young homeless people so we hope you will come along and support us. Last year we  raised over a £1000 and we hope to beat that amount this year.
Here are a few images to show how industrious everyone was yesterday at the Barn.
Eileen was attaching the lining to a bag that she had made at an earlier workshop with Ineke.
Trish was working on a summer tablecloth using some gorgeous breakdown printed and dyed fabrics that she produced during this term. The Kaleidoscope Triangle ruler was making quick work of the cutting out.
Jill was machine quilting the background of this beautiful printed fabric. The prints are all from Jill's drawings that she had made into Thermofax screens.
Ann has produced some very exciting work this year and as it is almost complete she spent the day working on this coil pot using an African printed fabric with a very bizarre design on it. But used in this way it is going to make an amazing container which will hopefully be at the exhibition.
Ruth was adding extra printing to this lively breakdown printed cloth which she intends to add to her stash for use next year.
Judith was sewing a sleeve on to one of her many pieces inspired by a collection of wonderful brass rubbings.
I hope this taster of some of the work that will be on display at our exhibition, will inspire you to come along. If you need directions please e-mail me.
Thanks for reading and speak to you soon.
