Off to beautiful Wales

Work in progress - Tina Francis - Martin Christie (image)

So the end of March came and went which heralded the end of the ICHF Stitching shows until later in the year. I really enjoyed myself and am looking forward to being part of their new show at Harrogate in May.
The exhibition "Where Wool Meets" at Clerkenwell went really well and we are now looking for new galleries to exhibit together.
This coming weekend I will be at Wonder Wool, Wales at the Welsh Show Ground. I am very excited about exhibiting there because it will be my first time exhibiting in Wales. I am taking the printed and counted kits alongside stationary and homewares. Also there will be a limited edition kit especially for the show which has a real Welsh flavour!

The kits use my "Welsh Weave" design which I am using for my current art piece "Same But Different", they have unique colourways because I promise never to combine these colours ever again! (Some of them are truly 1970's caravan!). The mandalas are coming along too and I have been working on some kits for release later in the year.Some of the kits will use 30cm diameter size mandalas!

Happy Stitching!
