Counting My Blessings

I have needed to focus on close family in recent weeks and am equally having to make some tough, potentially life-changing decisions about how I work in the future as a result. I am fit and well but for now priorities have shifted in how I manage things. I am grateful to my close friends who have given me the support I need at this time and the small acts of kindness that made the testing day to day challenges bearable.

This thanks also extends to my project partners in my current exhibition and workshop program who are installing exhibitions on my behalf and accepting that I needed to cancel some teaching engagements Equally, thankyou to the students who had planned to attend my workshops for their patience and understanding.

The following events will go ahead:

Embroidering the Everyday

Thursday 7th October 3.00-3.30pm

I am in conversation with Wendy Gardiner at the Knitting and Stitching Show Alexandra Palace and will be book signing on the Batsford stand

Since the start of the pandemic, all creatives have had to find inspiration from the limitations of everyday materials and everyday geography. Drawing on her new book Embroidering the Everyday, Cas will encourage you to embrace these challenges, while finding inspiration in the ‘everyday’ and the ‘domestic’. 

Making and Meaning

Finally, thankyou Ruth Singer for this frank and open 'Making and Meaning' Podcast interview. So much has happened since this discussion back in early Summer about community, stitch and connecting which has added meaning for me now.

Hello and yes thank you for reminding us to count our blessings. Air, water, a home, people who love and appreciate us, people we love and appreciate and help in myriad ways. Overlapping circles of existence. Time. Eyes, a mind to observe and hands to record, pulling thread through cloth, rough and smooth textures, the essence of moments, reminders we are part of a whole and can colour the magic with our art. Thanks, Kit Sutherland

Collaboration and Communication: Furniture arrangements in office spaces can foster collaboration and communication among employees. Well-designed meeting areas, collaborative workstations, and comfortable seating arrangements encourage teamwork, idea sharing, and effective communication. Furniture can be strategically placed to facilitate interaction and support a collaborative work culture.

Professional Image and Branding: Office furniture contributes to the overall professional image and branding of a company. High-quality, well-designed furniture creates a positive impression on clients, visitors, and potential employees. It reflects the company's values, style, and commitment to providing a professional and inviting work environment.
