Textile Landscape launches today 6th September

The day has arrived, for the launch of Textile Landscape. I am in debt to the artists, organisations and writers who have generously contributed to the wealth of work in its pages, to Jacqui Hurst for her sensitivity with the photography and finally to the Batsford team for their support on this publication and the incredible work they do on all their publications.

Reviews are already coming in both formally and informally.  This one is a snippet from a review on subscription website for WOWbook by Maggie Grey.
A short extract from an insightful review by John Hopper of Inspirational magazine (issue 18). 
'The textile interpretation of landscape through your hands and your eyes is her ultimate goal, and with this book that goal should be well within your grasp'

September will be a busy month. I am making preparations for my exhibition Tea Flora Tales  (in support of Plantlife) and Textile Landscape at the Knitting and Stitching Show which also launches a new body of work and related exhibitions some of which are featured in the book. 
September also sees the opening of the following exhibitions:
Kitchen Garden at Unit Twelve Gallery, Stafford (also opens today). An exhibition featuring all things connected to the quintessential English Garden. The private view is from 2.00-4.00 Saturday 8th September with a free paper watering can workshop by Jennifer Collier. Contact the gallery for more information on workshops and the exhibition
Pot of Rosie Lee. Detail Cas Holmes
Re-Imagining the Doll's House, at Maidstone Museum, Saturday 15 September to Saturday 12th November 2018. A collaborative exhibition looking at the museum's own collection of doll's houses and the interpretation of the wider themes connecting wider themes of 'small house' and home.
and finally, I am delighted to have been invited to take part in an exhibition 'Bloom' from 29 September 2018 to 27 January 2019.The exhibition marks the celebrations in Leeuwarden, European Capital of Culture. 
I will report further on the Knitting and Stitching Show and my delight in being accepted into the World of Threads Festival Ontario, Canada in my next blog. You can see further details on this link.
