Sewing for Pleasure, Fashion & EmbroideryThis ICHF event, held last weekend at the NEC in Birmingham, was attended by Ann, Christine and Judi who all had a stimulating, interesting and expensive (!) day. The show was very busy and we went on Sunday which sadly meant that some of the stallholders had sold out of their products.
One of the stands was filled with work by Grasby Embroiderers, a textile group from South Humberside, who very kindly allowed us to photograph their beautifully produced and imaginative art.
There was also a large knitted installation: Yarnia - based on The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, the first of the Chronicles of Narnia. Here are the Pevensie children:
And here is the White Witch, and Mr Tumnus, all wearing their knitted outfits.
