The ICHF show 'Stitch, Sew & Hobbycrafts' at Westpoint, Exeter last week was brilliant. Really, really busy and such a lovely crowd too.
Wendy Dolan was on the stand opposite me. Not sure if she was there during the day though as there was always such a crowd around her stand I just couldn't see her!!! :)
And I know Kim Thittichai was in the same boat further along. It was manic at times.
Managed to remember to take a photo of the stand early one morning.
Do hope I get the opportunity to be there again next year.
I shall be at Ally Pally demonstrating on the ArtVanGo stand on Thursday and Friday if you want to come along and say hello. I shall also be there Saturday as a visitor and possibly helping out on Sunday, but not sure yet.
In case you didn't know, Ally Pally will be open until 7 pm on the Thursday evening and I believe that several people have got things going on such as Ruth Issett and Bobby Britnell who will have a joint book launch in the evening.
Also wanted to let you know, in case you haven't seen the workshop programme yet, that I shall be at ArtVanGo on Tuesday Ocober 22nd and Wednesday October 23rd teaching a workshop 'Fragments to Artefacts' if you are interested.
Will also be there on Saturday October 26th with the Thermofax machine if you wanted to come along and have a screen burned. All you need is a black and white image, drawn, copied or printed, to the size of the screen you want and we will do the rest.
One lady at the show, after studying my 'WW1 Shrine' and the 'Geralds Game' piece asked if I had managed to get over my obsession with skulls.
This book arrived in the post on Monday:
