West Country Quilt Show UK

In November, the University of West England in Bristol is host to a small, but growing West Country Quilt and Textile Show.  The galleries are mostly contemporary/art quilt groups or individuals.  This year, 6 SAQA members had galleries.  Alicia Merrett and k3n shared a long stand, myself and Stephanie Crawford has a stand, Cherrilyn Tyler has a stand for her fabulous sheer embroideries and Kate Findlay's Hadron Collider quilts also had their own stand.

My camera is brand new and I haven't yet read the instructions, so I apologise for the quality of the following pictures:
Stephanie's Glimpse series

Some of Alicia's work
One of Kate's Wall

My Experimental Collages

We also took the opportunity to have an informal chat and get to know Cherrilyn who lives in a different part of the UK. It was hard work but rewarding as visitors were very complementary about our work.

Next to Harrogate where Cherrilyn and I will be stewarding the SAQA stand, Food for Thought. Hopefully see of you there.
