New addition in My Room of Requirements

Image

So pleased with my new sewing table made by the very talented friend Alan Stokes of Als Joinery Barn who has made a fantastic job of bringing my requirements to life.

I had been using a mismash of my Sewezi table and others in this space which was driving me mad.

Just need to use it now!

Whitworth Art Gallery

January is not the best month to have a birthday but when the weather is terrible it does give you the perfect excuse for a visit to one of my favourite places which is the Whitworth 

I hadn’t checked to see what was being exhibited so was very excited to see these quilted items on display as part of the ‘Beyond Borders’ exhibition which ‘explores South Asian textiles bringing together four artists working on issues around post-colonial identity, ruptured spaces, authenticity, displacement and belonging.’

I absolutely love this coat.
The information displayed with it was ‘Banyan 1760 – 1770 Cotton, hand painted and quilted. Mans garment worn indoors. Hand woven in India.’

To my surprise there were a couple of more recent quilts.

This is the Panchamahabhuta quilt (2014) and relates to a community-based organisation – Thotpot – in Mumbai, India who have revived the traditional quilt-making art known as Godhri or Godhari.

This one is by Risham Syed 2014

I loved the story behind it.

This piece ‘Seven Billion and One’ (2015) is a huge piece covering an entire wall and I really like it.

In total there are 108 screenprints on blackboard paint on newsprint although just 96 are on display.

Although I have seen it before, I couldn’t resist another look at the work of Barbara Brown.

I even love the staircase and this fabulous iron work, do you think I might have a problem? On second thoughts, don’t answer that!

A good time had by all

So the Quilters Exhibition & Fabric Sale event in Nantwich has come and gone for another year and it was thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended braving the terrible weather.

Here are some photos of the fabulous quilts that were on display made by the very talented Maureen Crawford.











Unfortunately I didn’t manage to take photos of all the beautiful work on display upstairs by local quilting groups and Linus but did manage to photo this absolutely stunning nuno felted tunic made by the very talented Mandy Hague.

But there is no rest for the wicked, plans have already begun for 2019!
