Inbetweeners - Members in Print and Making an Exhibition of Themselves

Harold Hare, a piece by talented Halifax member, textile artist Anne Brooke, proprietor of H-Anne Made, featured in the Gallery section of April's "Be Creative with Workbox" magazine. Workbox has recently undergone a revamp and if you haven't seen a copy for a while, it's worth checking out again.

The original Harold

Also in print, this time in the 3rd edition of Scheepjes' "Yarn" magazine (another strokeable publication!), is a beautiful Humming Bird tablet case by Liz Barraclough, which features some colourful  ribbon embroidery. Ribbon embroidery is often seen as quite a traditional craft, but Liz has brought it right up to date with this piece. 

The article in the magazine

The tablet case in close-up. Brilliant matching of ribbons and threads, 
and lots of hand-stitching.

Finally, the ridiculously talented Judy Tadman, who is skilled in so many areas and has made the art of rope sculpture her own, has not only turned her hand to wood turning (sorry) but has also managed to combine this with her love of stitch, by documenting her fellow "turners" in amazing machine embroidery illustrations. These were on display at the Birstall Wood Turning Club's open day in May. 

There are some aspects of doing this blog that make me feel really inadequate!
