    The River Art Market is back on 13th August – the earlier markets in June and July proved really popular with residents and visitors alike. What could be more pleasurable than wandering along the riverside looking at beautiful creations?

    Busy, busy, busy! For the past couple of months I’ve been making lots of lovely things for a Christmas Chalet outside the Judge’s Lodgings on Lendal in York: on Saturday 5th, Sunday 6th, Thursday 17th & Friday 18th December. Come and feast your eyes on textile art pictures, cards, gifts and homeware items! There will be several artisan stalls selling their wares, organised by Britain Does Vintage.

    This week several pieces of my work are in an exhibition at Gracious Street Methodist Church as part of Knaresborough’s visual arts festival, FEVA. On until the end of the day on Saturday 22nd August, you can see a range of work by members of the textile group Decora everyday from 10am to 4pm. One of my pieces from a collection inspired by Russian and Eastern European folk art, ‘Fruitful Offerings’, is shown below.

    I have a joint exhibition ‘Folk Threads’ with Kate Fenton at The Golden Ball which opens on Saturday 23rd May and runs until 24th July. Come along and see what you think – view the exhibition in the Garden Room when the pub is open! A lot of my pieces have been inspired by Russian and Eastern European folk art; I also have a number of Japanese inspired pieces.
