Showtime! Spring Knitting & Stitching Show 2014!

Thought I’d swoop by and share a couple of photos from the Mr X Stitch Inspiration Station at the Spring Knitting & Stitching Show that is happening right now! (Well, this weekend any way.)

The Mr X Stitch Inspiration Station

The Inspiration Station features entries for the Young Embroiderers De Denne Competition with the theme of Tree Rhythms – Muriel Campbell (Chair of YE), Floss & Mischief and I were the judging panel and it was great to see such lovely art being made by the junior members! Here’s us deep in thought…

We’ve ¬†got volunteers teaching cross stitch on the stand, many of whom are degree students from the Royal School of Needlework! Here’s an action shot!

Crikey! Look at them go!

There’s a lot of inspiration all around the show with some fantastic installations from Toft Alpaca, Thames Valley Contemporary Textiles and some amazing work from the Silk Felt Collective. There’s a lot more going on but I haven’t had chance to see it yet!

We’ll be at the show all weekend and if you’re coming on Saturday you’ll get to meet Lord Libidan and Spike Dennis – the boyz will be in the hood! See you there!

Did you go to the show? What did you think about it?
