Textile Arts Festival
We are having a great time here in Brisbane at the Textile Arts Festival. Not as big as the other shows and there are some really interesting exhibitors here who I haven't seen before. Above is my quilt Flowing which is part of the State of the Art Exhibition from Queensland Quilters contemporary group.
Louise Snook from Perth is teaching silk screen printing and using some really interesting techniques
The 12 x 12 Exhibition is here too and they look wonderful in the 'flesh'. Here are Brenda and Kirsty who not only look after it all day - run demonstrations of some of the different techniques. Now I know what to do with that tin of Orange De-solve that I have had at home forever.
Loani Prior's whimsical teapots are on display - I am so tempted to get out the knitting needles but I just don't have time for another obsession at the moment. Actually - not sure I have a teapot anyway.
I actually took these photos just before the Show opened this morning which is the only time I get to have a good look and talk to stand holders and demonstrators.
We are really having a good time - pity it is only a three day show but it can only get better.
