It’s finally here! The return of Knitting & Stitching Show 2021. I’ve filmed a quick preview of the event for you. Stay tuned and Subscribe to catch up with all the latest events from the Show.
I’m attending, press pass in hand, filming all the events and interviewing as many artists as I can fit into the four days. A brilliant show – as you can see from the amazing textile art shared in the video below.
It’s finally here! The return of Europe’s largest quilt show The Festival of Quilts 2021. I was there, press pass in hand, filming all the events and interviewing as many artists as I could fit into the four days. A brilliant show – as you can see from the amazing textile art shared in the video below.
What a wonderful show and just what I needed to start filming again. Family commitments over the past year made it difficult to plan ‘Meet the Artist’ interviews, so you’ll be pleased to know that things have settled down and I’m back filming again. Watch this space for some amazing ‘Meet the Artist’ interviews in the coming months. ‘Subscribe + 🔔’ in YouTube and be the first to see them.
The event was spacious and airy with sanitiser stations everywhere. We were all checked before entry. Each exhibitor and visitor needed proof of a double vaccination or a negative test before they were allowed into the building.
Thank you to all the artists, exhibitors and staff of the NEC and Upper Street Events for making this long awaited show such a safe and amazing success.
Note: The artwork on the Festival of Quilts poster is by artist Sarah Hibbert.
Textile artist, Karina, embraces digital data & digital technology in her work. She explains how she uses Photoshop, digital embroidery, free motion long arm quilting & digital print onto fabric, to create her uniquely embroidered textile art.
Karina’s “1 hour’s production = 1.5 miles = 15 lengths” large embroidered piece was part of the ‘Cloth and Memory 2’ exhibition at Salts Mill, Saltaire. It is stitched on woollen cloth woven in Yorkshire.
