Hey EPQ members! You’ve all been busy finishing quilts for our exhibition that you may need to restock the stash … Here’s just what you need. Two Sydney fabric stores with great sales – Quiltsmith at Annandale and The Remnant Warehouse at Alexandria.
Well worth the trip to Mosman is an exhibition that is finishing this Sunday, January 29th.
Slipstitch is an exhibition of contemporary embroidery from a diverse group of artists and on a wide range of subjects. The idea behind the exhibition is that embroidery can be used to convey messages in modern times just as it did in the past. I really appreciated that a number of the works featured reused textiles and materials. It was also great to see embroidery as a focus of a whole exhibition.
Here are a couple of my favourites – I love how the stitcher used traditional methods and materials to convey a modern message.
