The Knitting & Stitching Show, Harrogate 2016

I went to the Knitting & Stitching Show in Harrogate yesterday. Here are some of the wonderful artworks on view.
Christina Ellcock's work inspired by the coast. 




One of nine of Sally Skaife's oyster pictures. 
 These pieces were made by member of the unFOLD group of textile artists.

Debbie Lyddon, Liminal Objects: Sea Purses 4, 2016 (linen, wire, saltwater).
Cushion cover by Annie Eastwood, 1923.



Unfinished miniature hexagonal patchwork with beading.
Jan Beaney and Jean Littlejohn have a huge exhibition space filled with their art works, books, DVDs and their sketchbooks and samples.
Sketchbook pages and samples

 Bracket Fungi Sample by Jan Beaney


 Sue Stone's "Do You Remember Me?" 63 self portraits, one for each year of the artist's life.

An exhibition space filled with textile art on the theme of nature.
 Annette Collinge, Petworth I and II

 Janet Edmonds', Browns Place

 Diana Springall, Cornus Aurea in Winter at Leeds Castle
Another major feature of The Show is the huge variety of stands selling everything textile-related: yarns, threads, tools, antique textiles, books. I really could have spent a fortune on beautiful supplies 'just-in-case', but managed to limit myself to some sashiko thread and needles and a piece of Japanese fabric in dark indigo, from Japan Crafts, four books from Jan Beaney and Jean Littlejohn, plus a bag of colourful thread ends from Oliver Twists.
