I had an amazing few days in my fully immerse stand where I met lots of people and had lots of lovely comments.
The show was fantastically organised – thank you to all the staff at Knit & Stitch behind the scenes.
It was great to see so many months of work fully realised.

I will be undertaking a deep exploration of memories through our toys for the Knitting & Stitching Shows this year, producing an atmospheric ‘Memory Room’ where the viewer will be immersed in toys of the past and memories of childhood.
I will be using images in different mediums – textiles, prints and 3D forms.
As ever, shadows will be a prominent feature.

I have been running many Talks & Workshops this year, with a wonderful response in Ashbourne and Grantham most recently. It’s always great to meet people who love their textiles.
I am looking forward to running another workshop soon in Grantham and giving another talk in Hull next month.
I had a great time at TOAF this October.
I showed lots of new work and, as always, met lots of interesting people.
Teddy was sold and is now very happy in his new home, near Tower Bridge, surrounded by other pieces of art.

I’m delighted for you to know that I’m exhibiting at The Other Art Fair in October 2018.
It’s the 30th edition of TOAF and the 3rd time I’ve taken part.
I’m looking forward to showing a range of new work that has never been seen at the Fair.
The Private View is Thursday 4th October and the Fair will be open Fri 5th – Sun 7th.
Here’s Big Ted’s companion, Small Ted.
I am planning another 8 toy sculptures in the next few months…watch this space!
Here are some pictures of my latest project, Big Ted, sandwiched in Perspex – and looking very pleased with himself!
I had a very enjoyable day on Saturday 14th April as part of the Embroiderers Guild AGM at Milton Keynes. It was great to meet so many like minded people.
Thanks to everyone involved for making me so welcome.
These pieces are currently being displayed at Piccolo Gallery in London.
I ran a very enjoyable workshop on Figures, Faces and fabrics near Stamford on March 14th.
I was welcomed by a very friendly and very talented group, who bought some wonderful memories to work on.
