'Fibrefusion' exhibiting at 'Knit and Stitch', Harrogate 2009

Thursday, November 12, 2009

Are you going to The Knitting and Stitching Show at Harrogate, England, next weekend? The show is on from Thursday 19th - 22nd November. Every year for several years, I have made my annual trip down to the Knitting and Stitching show at Alexander Palace, London. Every year I have left totally in awe of the amount of creativity, my head full of inspiration, my bags full of wonderful stuff and my wallet empty.

This year is slightly different and I so excited. As I've mentioned in earlier blog posts, I joined the very advanced textile/fiber art group 'Fibrefusion' this summer. 'Fibrefusion' will be exhibiting at 'The Knit and Stitch' in Harrogate next weekend! Our stand will be downstairs in Hall F as you come down the stairs, and across from the schwissing area (sorry, I'm not quite sure how to spell that). I don't have the exact stand number at the present time, but I think we'll be hard to miss. Please be sure to stop by, say hello and FEEL FREE TO TOUCH OUR EXHIBITION PIECES. They are MEANT to be touched. Usually it is the biggest no no to even think about touching items on display, however much ones fingers are itching. Fiber art is so tactile, and 'Fibrefusion' therefore decided to break the norm, and make an exhibition where you have that added tactile dimension of touching and feeling. It will be very exciting to see, how it is being received. I promise you that the work on display is superb.
If you want to know more about the group, and our work please visit our web site Fibrefusion On the website, you will as well be able to find more information about our very well received inspirational work books on contemporary, free style machine embroidery, that has been published by the group.
The bowl in the photos is not the piece that I'm exhibition at Harrogate. That piece will remain a secret until then :-)
