Had a great day at the Festival of Quilts yesterday at the NEC. My first time of going but there were over 1000 quilts on display, with many textile artists doing demonstrations and lectures. There were some fabulous quilts both contemporary, art and traditional. Spent ages (not to mention loadsa money) at artist supplier of choice Art Van Go - that place is just an absolute Aladins cave of artists materials - bought a silk screen and squeegee as I have fancied having a go at silk screen printing for ages.
Also great to meet up with Linda and Laura Kemshall from Design Matters TV.
