The range of signature cloths in the IQSC in Nebraska is amazing, there are over 70 examples in this one collection alone. I am looking forward to curating an exhibition there this Sept.
The finished work will be displayed in the cafe of Touchstones Gallery from the 15th June for 2 weeks.
Working on the Hepworth project, over the last six months, a collaboration with poet Shamshad Khan and a group of women in the Falinge area of Rochdale is so interesting. As ever the catalyst is a creative collaboration, but the outcomes in terms of discussions and sharing are so varied and wonderful. Our cloth and poems are shown in the cafe of Touchstones Gallery from 15th June.
A busy year with three major conference presentations in Delhi, Liverpool and Virginia. The last was “From Bengal to Baltimore” a quilt conference in Williamsburg, Virginia.

The new bags from Ahmedabad were display at the Craft Centre in Manchester as part of the Asian Triennial in the autumn. They are made from khadi cloth, woven according to Ghandi’s principals. Khadi is a movement started by Gandhi and aimed at boycotting foreign goods and promoting Indian goods, thereby improving India’s economy.
