Knitting and Stitching Show

I spent a very pleasant day at Harrogate on Friday. In the morning I looked around the exhibition and was blown away by some of the work on show, especially the quilts. So many hours must have been spend on them but they were superb. Here;s are a couple of pics of other artists whose work was featured and struck a chord with me.

The knitted upholstery is by Marisa Sanvito – fab colours and very very well executed.
I enjoyed Carole Waddles work too.

Barbare Jepsons use of colour is inspiring.

There were more but too many to show here, definitely visit next year if you get a chance. The quilts were so brilliant that I may just have to make it to the Festival of Quilts exhibition next year. I was well behaved and didn’t cave into temptation to buy more than I need. Well, not much!. In the afternoon I helped out on the IFA stand demonstrating feltmaking and talking to visitors. Had a brilliant time and saw lots ofย  friends.
