Come over to Tudorrosepatchwork patchwork shop, Oakley, just outside Bedford 19th or 20th Jan and see what our talented students have been up to throughout 2018. Bring the hubby and park him in the coffee shop whilst you look round the exhibition and the shop. Then settle back and he can buy lunch too
we hope you will be able to come and share this couple of days with many of our students who will be available to chat with you if you have any questions
we look forward to welcoming you
Kathy, Sandra and all the crew.
Some of the 2014 Students at the Exhibition.
It was a real treat to see my students work set out for viewing by the customers of the shop. Here are some of the fine work produced from the “Printing fabrics for patchwork and embroidery monthly course. The course covered mono printing, stenciling, stamping, dying using Procion MX dyes, marbling, transfer printing and many other techniques. I was so proud of all of their hard work and everyone who came had only the best words to say about the work.
The 2014 exhibition of students work is up and ready for you to come and view tomorrow 10 am- 4.30 pm.
It all looks lovely and well worth a visit.
Left home to collect Julia at 6.45pm for the last day of the knitting and stitch show. Good journey down but a long day commenced with the dreaded break down at the end of it.
Thankfully Julia is great at packing and balancing things on the trollies so we were out and on our way home within 35 mins and home by 7 pm.
We dumped everything through the front door and bless him, hubby had tea done and a large glass of chilled white wine waiting. Putting away took me all of Monday and some of Tuesday but I’m ship shape now and ready for the onslaught of more samples for upcoming work shops.
I really enjoyed the show and hopefully some new adventures will come out of it but I am glad to get back to some kind of normality. Love the picture of my daughter wearing my fascinator. She was as fresh as a daisy on Sunday while the rest of us were weary and worn out.
The first day of The Knitting and Stitching Show opened today and was packed all day. There seemed to be more people than last year or is it that I’m another year older and it just appears like that.
Quite a odd set up this year as I am directly across the aisle from Margaret Beal of Burning Issues and I think we were both a little uneasy as to how we would do trading so close to each other. Good news is that it doesn’t appear to be an issue and we both did well for our first day even if between us we managed to bung up the isle with interested customers.
Journey into the show from our hotel is terrible but thankfully it’s only once a year.
Tomorrow I want to go in early so I can look at all the yummy exhibitions and find out what’s new this year.
My new kits for the show are going down well with my little boxes and fan kits walking out fast. Dragonfly canvas is yet to get going and may need a push tomorrow . It’s a LOVELY kit.
Sorry I haven’t been very good with my blogs lately. In fact they have been none existent due to a really busy period running all over the country and trying to restock for the big show of the year.
I have spent the last two weekends, one in Harrogate giving a talk to the LOVELY ladies of Yorkshire and visiting the shops where YES they have a Lakeland and last weekend I was in North Wales giving a workshop to the keen ladies of Wales.
All of this week has been work work work to re-kit the stand which is going well and hopefully will leave me with time to finish some new pieces of work for my display.
This weekend is looking like trouble as Julia my eldest is moving out and into her first house so everyone will be needed to help her and I doubt I will get any of my stuff achieved. Mind you next week will then be quieter so I will get things done double fast hopefully. Failing that I can always get distracted by Fudge the puppy who has settled in very nicely and he and Archie the older dog are now firm friends and mischief makers.
