Embroiderers Guild Olympic Post cards

Yesterday at Meadow Banks Art complex Edinburgh I was fortunate to be able to see all 3000 plus Olympic postcards. They were amazing, stunning and showed so much talent. Well done to every embroiderer who took part. If your in Edinburgh they are well worth a look.
Also while you are there you really need to check out the embroiderers guild exhibition hung in the same building with some stunning examples of embroidery. I came away very inspired by the work on show

All the postcards have been hung against white walls

Middle row are my guilds post cards. well done Bedford ladies

Scottish regional day lecture

Today I gave the Madeira lecture at the Scottish Regional Day. Boy it was nerve racking but I managed to get through it without falling off the podium or dropping my notes. The talk was EXTRAV-ORGANZA and I was relieved when the presentation I had prepared opened on the venues laptop. At the end of the day I was fortunate to be able to visit the Arts complex where I viewed the 3000plus post cards made by Embroider’s Guild from all over the country. They were awesome all hung together in one room. It didn’t take me long to find Bedford’s post cards based on Germany.
