Connect in Threads are a group of like-minded thread obsessives who share ideas, inspiration and textile chat. We are a group of textile Artists working individually and as a group to exhibit anything to do with fabric and thread and the wonderful diverse world of textiles. We love hand and machine embroidery, weaving, felting, embellishing, knitting, painting and printmaking in all of its forms.
Our day began eagerly, with a display of our unfinished 'WIP' of Hundertwasser
(work in progress). Here is Ruth's and Joy's work is below
This is Dinah's - can you spot the face? On the right is Elaine's work
Here is Lillian's felt work, which I am pretty sure is upside down - will be the right way up soon :)
This large lovely onion top is Pat's work
Jude's applique and hand embroidery
Dina's fabric and paper work for Hundertwasser
Now can you see the face? Debbie's vibrant felt work
Janet L has just started
Clare has painted her fabric in preparation for stitch
We then proceeded to distribute calico and tunic/dress patterns in readiness for our new project which 16 of us are going to participate in. The dresses will be complete garments or a front of a garment, hanging on coat-hangers. The dresses will be painted/printed/stitched/embellished in a totally individual way...when complete the dresses will be in our next exhibition. Exciting times ahead!
Di has knitted these square with her oddments of wool - all for charity. Each square is a different knitted pattern and is exquisite!
Ruth and Dina share an interest in wire - not just any old wire!
Joy continued to work on her Maryke book....1
Debbie worked on a hand embroidered cushion in lovely colourways
Lillian and Cheryl sharing ideas (I don't think it is anything to do with chocolate)
