Thought you would like to share in our day of "putting up the exhibition at the Red House Glass Cone"
Members came and dropped off their work during the morning
Our team of committee members and "co-opted" committee members, worked very hard
Denise and Carole make light of
attaching any missing glass plates
Work was grouped in themes and/or colourways, propped against the walls
Work had to be unpacked and organised for the many cabinets
Everyone found a job soon enough as there was such a lot to do. We all played to our individual strengths - marvellous!
More sub-committee work - tricky one to hang Yvonne
Connect in Threads "Multi-Coloured Swop-shop" looking great
Margaret's pages of a Journal - board 1 of 2
Not what you might think!! - A 3D cage to hang work on and display work within
Alison and Maggie admiring Margaret's journal
The walls started to fill
A hive of industry
Yvonne ready to hang the lovely group of mirrors which are presently on the table
Una and Jude's pieces on the outside of the cage and pages of Ruth's journal inside the cage
Our thanks to Mike Flavell and Barry who worked so hard for us
Even down to the sweeping!!
So proud of a job well done!!
Then it came to hanging the bunting from the ceiling
Jean's lutrador piece in the cabinet
Martha's 3D piece
Another cabinet with more work from Louise, Lillian and ElaineJanet's winning piece and Una's bowl
This looks nice but it later changes due to the late arrival of Louise Bloomer, and it becomes our twinkling corner
Louise's Kaleidoscope went beautifully with the stained glass
These 3 complimented one another - by Gill and Joy
Jude's Pink Bubbles print and hand embroidery
It was very difficult to photograph glazed work without getting reflections - apologies to all concerned. Here is a piece by Louise Henley and 4 by Margaret Guy
Another glazed and difficult to see, is Jude's "Looking Through a Child's Eyes" to see the fairies in the woods
Pat Withers hanging quilt can be seen as soon as you enter the exhibition
The next 3 pieces are Diana's
We have a lovely "white wall" - here are Margaret Biggs and Mary's pieces
Yvonne's in a Perspex frame
Janet Connock's 3D work in a cabinet
Elaine's - small and beautiful as we expect
Margaret's work using light sensitive printing techniques
Debbie Rosser's felt work - our chosen piece of work to advertise the exhibition on our flyers
Bunting is up and the exhibition is really taking shape
Bunting part 2
Clare's Quilt and our collection to celebrate our Pearl Anniversary, in display books

This is just a taster of our exhibition which I hope has inspired and encouraged you to want to see more. It opens on Saturday 20th September. Take a friend and remember to sign the visitor's book.
Well done to everyone who helped put up the exhibition and put up with my grumpy disposition - normal service will be resumed as soon as possible!
Well done to everyone who entered work for the exhibition; it is stunning and promises to be our most successful one to date.
