MALMESBURY EXHIBITION

In case you're wondering, the reason for my silence for almost three weeks has been a wonderful holiday in Thailand - an amazing time was had and so many beautiful things were seen. More of that in future posts.....

Meanwhile, Great Western Embroiderers' exhibition in Malmesbury Town Hall Gallery has been very successful, with a lot of interest and great footfall. Samples of the work are shown in this post. The choice of work photographed is entirely personal though some of the pieces will be familiar to regular readers of this blog from previous posts.


As you can see, we are a very varied group with a wide range of skills and interests - one of our strengths, I think. Our exhibitions offer something for everyone and are very popular in the area.

Our group piece ...

Cotswolds in Stitches
featuring 8 " squares contributed by GWE members
A favourite wall ....
Work showing a range of styles,
including appliqué, weaving, quilting and goldwork
.... and three of my own particular individual favourites which demonstrate the width and variety of the group's work.....

Ruth Hayman
Fossils - Handstitch on Procion dyed canvas

Caroline Goss
On Tenterhooks
Woven wall-hanging
Pam Debenham
The Wool Merchant's Mask
Counted Thread work

The last day of the exhibition is Friday 8 March - so there is just time to visit if you have not been able to come so far.
