After lunch we all split up and went our different ways. I find these kind of events are best attended solo, because no two people are going to look at the same things together all day. I prefer to wander free and not have to worry about losing someone. We arranged to meet up at 4pm.
The Embroiderers Guild had a large display area at the Knit and Stitch Show, almost the whole room to themselves. There were a lot of small canvases with amazing works on them. Click on one picture for a slide show.
Plenty of quilts to drool over. This one was massive
One hall had a lot of textile art pieces, which I found interesting. Someone posted a picture of these large people on the Textile Artists site. Amazing to see them in the flesh ;o) They are body suits big enough for a human to get inside. There was a video showing of one of them dancing about on a lawn.
I quite like this idea. Jen Cable adds stitching and textiles to pieces of tree bark. You can see some of her other work here.
