Wow, this is one hell of a story in the Mirror, about Rose West giving craft lessons. My favourite line from the piece?
‘They are all good with needles, which is not necessarily a pleasant thought considering their crimes.’
So says the Evening Standard in their Monday supplement, Trends. All illustrated with a nice big picture of a cross-stitched Vogue.
I have spent most of today at the Stitch and Craft show. Here are my favourite pictures of the day:
1. Snippets from the Foundling Museum’s ‘Threads of Feeling’ exhibition.
2&3. Two pieces from the uber- brilliant exhibition of famous knitted artworks, by Newcastle-based knitters The Materialistics.
4. Yarn. Lovely, colourful yarn.
5. Loani Prior’s Carmen Miranda-inspired tea cozy.
6&9. Gaga and other stuff, stitched, and the new-to-2011 Mr X Stitch stand. Nothing to buy, just stuff to look at.
Should you care to
smack her in the face cross stitch her face, you’ll need to go see the mighty fine people over at the CrossStitcher website.
The Independent absolutely ROCK for producing this gallery of handcrafted celebrations of the royal wedding.
Look at what embroiderer Jenny Hart did!
(ps. If any art directors are reading this – I can totally do this kind of thing too. Really. I’d do it good.)
I met the head of the transition team at mine and Mr X Stitch’s craft party on Thursday. Very interesting to hear her thoughts. What does anyone think of the new mag?
When I get a preview copy I’ll let you know what it looks like. Apparently it’s more stylish.
