Description

Textiles in Focus Revisit 2013

In  part 1 of our visit to the Textiles in Focus exhibition that was held in Cottenham, Cambs we are introduced to Pauline Verrinder who is not only the organiser of this event (which has now been running for 12 years) but also the mentor and teacher for several of the groups who were exhibiting.

Pauline was also kind enough to give us a short demonstration on how to make skeleton style leaves for use in seed heads by simply using the free motion stitch on the machine and some old scrim fabric (my Mum used that for washing windows but this is a much prettier use!)

Fan Edge Textiles

Fen Edge Textiles had an exhibition running in Wisbech.
