Post cards at the Artrex

I went to see the postcards of Athletes of the World this morning at the Artrex in Bromsgrove. I know some people saw it at Much Wenlock but to all accounts this is a much better display venue for them. They are amazing and I think include every type of textile embellishment technique there is. It finishes on November 4th. Here is link.

I think ours looked good. I would advise a visit.

A group of us had a brilliant day felting with Barbara Meek . In the morning we did a sample piece then we started a small bag which we completed in the afternoon along with handles and buttons. Everybody managed to make a bag which was brilliant as you can see by the photos . One of our group was moved to tears with the excitement of completing something so pretty in one day. You know who you are!

October AGM with Bobby Britnell

A brilliant afternoon was had by all when Bobby Britnell stepped in to give a lecture at last minute. Many people were left inspired. She talked about about her work, her up and coming book and the charity work she and her husband martin are doing in Uganda.
