I usually leave it to Lyn to post about the speaker at EYES but she is currently in charge of the library...so I remembered to click a few shots....
Google Sue Stone, textile artist from Grimsby... across the River Humber from Hull..check out
www.thewomanwithafish.com and the review of stuff and nonesense exhibition.
She was a fashion designer who turned to textiles and is now chair of 62 Group of Textile Artists.
She mainly uses a simple straight stitch to most of the work.
Check this one out.....all done in running stitch/straight stitch.....hopefully they will enlarge when you click on them....fabulous
When I worked in the community people didn't want to start creating until they had gone out and spent money they couldn't afford buying "good" equipment as if that was going to turn them into a famous artist...instead of creating with what they had and making something unique.
On the members display table....
I am still waiting for the work on my house to be finished....I have given away sack loads of fabric...and other stuff....in volume...the size of a single bedroom has gone...and lo and behold...the rest of it has spread to fill the space.....and its as if I never gave away anything !!
Happy, healthy new Year to anyone who wanders by this blog post.....
