Every week seems to be a busy week , this week has been a week at home teaching at Hebden Bridge and getting ready for exhibitions and teaching around the world.
Here is a picture of Fran’s finished quilt that she bought in to show
And one of me at work at the Quilt Cabin. I love my Sea Salt shirt
Working out which quilts are going where, packing them up in the various boxes, working out which company I trust to transport them half way around the world, filling in all the customs papers etc has taken up some of my time this week . Finger crossed that my quilts arrive safely.
Filling in all the forms, sending off requirements list, organising the correct photos etc is all the admin required to go to the fabulous places I go. I so much need a PA.
I have an exhibition in Mexico at the Mexican Expo the week after next – so excited, but just a little worried about whether I have packed all the things I need for teaching and have all the paperwork etc. I check and double check
Jane Rae from Today’s Quilter came to visit me, she is going to write an article about me and my work. She came to my studio and we chatted. I took her to Hebden Bridge to show her The Quilt Cabin where I teach regularly and to Heptonstall
She hadn’t been to our area before and was very impressed
Look out for an article “A day out in Hebden Bridge” which will appear in the magazine, sometime soon.
We also met up with one of the ladies I am organising the exhibition at Bankfield with. The newly restored Piece Hall looks great, and Square Chapel cafe a great place to meet.
Everything is coming together well for the exhibition ” Women Travellers” commencing November 24th. There will be a programme of talks and workshops, a couple maybe at the beginning of December but most will be in the Spring. I will probably be teaching a Photo to Stitch workshop and probably one inspired by Ethnic Textiles. Look out for another article in Today’s Quilter
I have booked a number of flights this week. I have an exhibition in Germany at the beginning of May at Karlsruhe
It will be a great place for me to show my Journeys in Stitch exhibition and meet up with friends from around Europe.
I am returning to Italy in May to have a few days walking in one of my most favourite places in the World – the Cinque Terre.
Think proseco, sunsets, coloured houses and aching legs. Love it all
Last night I went to watch the Banff Film Festival Films showing in Hebden Bridge. So busy and so inspiring. So much creativity and bravery. Each one was an amazing story.
It was beautiful weather one day this week but I had no chance to get out to enjoy it but did take a few photos. It’s a great commute to work when the weather is good.
I think i may have mentioned before on my blog that I am teaching at a new centre in France
Natalie says they will be featured in the Sunday papers either this weekend or next
Flights to get to Bordeaux are not so regular in October but there are flights to Limoges so if anyone is interested in coming you could be picked up from the airport there which makes it an easy and cheap journey from the north of England. There is only room for a small number of students so anyone coming will get lots of help. Weather at the beginning of October should be lovely
