Knitting and Stitching show

I think I have finally recovered after a hectic 2 days at the show. Age must be catching up on me as I found myself so very tired for a few days.
It was great to catch up with old friends and also to meet up with 2 ladies I have met through stitchinfingers.
Lots to see, there was an exhibition by O2 textiles which was full of humour, unfortunately no photos allowed but I did buy the booklet they had published as I so enjoyed their work.  The quilters guild had a few quilts on display and there were various others with pieces of work, some photos to follow. I am afraid I should have made notes as I seem to have forgotten some of the displays.

There was a competition to upcycle old clothes etc, Bella Lane who is a member of HEN had a pair of shoes which she had decorated.

I was also amused by this dress made from silk ties.

 A branch of the Embroiderer`s Guild in the north east had an exhibition based on the coal mines which was very interesting, just one photo to show you

The gold is for the the sand and to the right is the sea where they mined a lot of coal, on the left are the two rivers and the counties are marked by different fabrics.  You do not really get the effect from the photo but to see it was pretty amazing.

Another exhibition I was drawn with a variety of work by a group called Push stitchery, a couple more pictures

this was beautifully embroidered by Erin Endicott

 this is a piece of needle felting by Zoe Williams.

just one more photo I must share with you made from discarded tea bags, sorry not sure who did these or what group she was exhibiting with
 Someone certainly drank lots of tea,   she also had a wall hanging made from tea bags.

Will do another blog to confess what I spent my money on later. think this is more than enough for now.
