The first International Day of Felt has arrived and so have the high winds. I do hope people will turn out to take a look round the felt trail in Ilkley but they’ll need to wrap up and hang on to their hats!
Work can be seen at: Weaverbird framers, Gazette newspaper offices, Smooth cafe, Oxfam, Mortens hardware, Adress, 5th Avenue dress shop, The Art Shop, Young Pets, Spencers menswear, Duttons for Buttons haberdashers, Phillips the Jewellers and Cakewalk handmade shop.
The regional members of the International Feltmakers Association have produced miniature dresses which are on display in 5th Avenue and the Gazette offices. All other work has been produced by: Angela Barrow, Bronwen Edwards, Alyson Evans, Tracy Harrison, Phillippa Horner, Katharine Huggett, Yvonne Le Mare, Gill Manthorp,Tracy Markey and Sara Millis.
Some felters have been kind enough to produce and donate 6″ squares for a wallhanging to be sold in aid of Cancer Research, they are: Bronwen, Tracy H, Phillippa, Yvonne, Gill and myself. Below is the fruit of our efforts.
Organising the trail has taken more time than I thought but Yvonne and others have been very supportive. I hope everyone who sees it, enjoys the event. I can’t wait to see what other people have done.
