Origin etc

Well, once again I am starting my post with an apology for the lack of blogging activity recently.... must try harder!

Earlier this month I was exhibiting at Origin, the Crafts Council show at Somerset House in London. This was my second year there after a great exhibition in 2007. Akin to last year, I was given a fantastic stand, right by the show entrance - nobody could possibly miss me!

It was once again a busy show - great sales and contacts were made. The Thursday evening also saw me receiving my Wesley Barrell Craft Award for Interior Textiles which was the icing on the cake for the whole event.

It was also particularly wonderful to see some of the people that bought pieces from me last year.

This last picture shows me on the last day, somewhat tired and now if my comfy shoes!

As for other news: PARKart took some of my work to the Affordable Art Fair in London last week. They have also placed some of my 'Jacquard Sketch' artworks in Selfridge's, Oxford Street, London. You can see the work on the fourth floor in the Loft Living and BoConcept concessions.
