Stitched Together Exhibition at Green Howard's Museum

The Stitched Together project finished last year which resulted in an exhibition at the Green Howard's Museum in November-December 2017.  

All the participants of the project created their own messenger bags which were very personal and individual and techniques used were English paper piecing, printing (eco and screen), applique, hand and machine embroidery and cyanotype.

Dionne Swift and I both created pieces alongside all the Military Wives messenger bags.  

Sadly this project and exhibition has now finished but we are lucky enough to take it to various shows, the first being the Creative Craft Show 8-11th March at the SEC, Glasgow.  I will also be teaching two workshops on the Saturday and Sunday.  Dionne and I will then take the exhibition to the Creative Craft Show 15th-18th March at the NEC, Birmingham.  

If your at either Show please come along and say hello.
