Our elves have been very busy these past few months.
As ever a broad range of textile work. Christmas is in full swing for EYES members. Hidden away you will spot a New York Beauty, another cat basket and a knitted donkey. Watch out for December’s full blown Christmas display.
A select few this month but all still of very high quality and variety.
EYES members have been very busy over the August break. A wide variety of textile work demonstrates this. Christmas items have made their way onto the stage too. Above; Jaqui Ward-Lomax An experiment using acrylics and masking tape and dyeing. The embroidery was added to define the patterns created. Shield awarded at the Northern Quilt…
Another smaller than usual display as members are fully committed to our Minster Exhibition. Nonetheless a wonderful variety of work and talent displayed. Someone is even looking ahead to Christmas ! Check out the Father Christmas figure with its intricate embroidery.
Below Our Signature Exhibit, a tribute to Anne Pye who had the idea to gather a group together to sew this quilt. Unfortunately she herself was unable to see the project finalised. The group she had formed decided to see her dream fulfilled .
A smaller than usual display as everyone is working on items for the May Exhibition however everything of the usual high standard. Most have an Easter theme this month.
A wide range of creative textile work on display again this month. Ranging from quilts to intricate goldwork. Look out for Hilary’s bags created from CABLE! (craft acquisitions beyond life expectancy) I am sure we all fall into this pit.
