Knitting and Stitching Show

I helped to set up this exhibition on behalf of the Westhope Group of lacemakers at the NEC for the Knitting and Stitching Show. My piece ‘Memories are made of this’ is in the far right hand corner; it consists of three panels showing the degeneration of memory and is made of bobbin lace and silk paper. As well as helping to set up the show I also stewarded for a day. The response from the public was enthusiastic and we had plenty of visitors. Many of them were students who were interested to see what could be done with lace techniques. The exhibition will tour with the Knitting and Stitching Show to Alexandra Palace, London, and Harrogate.
