If you’ve been wondering why I have been a little quiet recently…
Earlier in the year I was lucky enough to be one of 6 people to win a stand through Craft Guerilla for the Knitting and Stitching show in Harrogate at the International Centre. So for the last 6 months I have been busy in the print studio hand screen printing my Christmas collection for the launch at the show next week, this includes screen printed art, cards, gift wrap, children’s T-shirts as well as my new range of cushions.
A lot of hand printed artwork will be sold at discount prices just for the duration of the show as a little Xmas present to my customers. It would be great if people could come and see me on stand E15 from Thursday 25th-28th November 10-5.30pm (5pm sunday).
Tickets for the show are £11 if you buy them in advance from the Twisted Thread website or £14 on the day.
Check out my new product range to be launched at the Knitting and Stitching show in November. They are all hand printed and hand stitched (thanks mum) and with Harvey, my mums dog, modeling the cushions, this is a true family collaboration. We also have some matching lavender hearts which smell and look divine and will make the perfect christmas present.
At the moment I am obsessed with drawing houses, I think its because I like to day dream I live in them. I saw Rachel Eardley’s work last week at GNCFF and whilst on her stand I heard her explain to someone how she loved to draw the scenes from windows. It struck a cord with me because I like to draw looking in, imagining the lives people have, living in there beautiful homes.
I visited the Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair on friday night and my favourite stand of the whole show was The Book Tree Press which is ran by Lucy Roscoe. I could have brought everything, if it wasnt for the fiance tightening the purse strings (boo!) but I still managed to get a lovely coptic stitch notebook and a few cards. Lucy graduated from Edinburgh College of Art this year and had already taken part in many exhibtions showcasing her gorgeous handbound, hand cut book arts. Not only does Lucy produce amazing books but her illustrations and designs work makes me incredibly jealous of her talent. She is definitely one to watch.
