Cutting + sticking + sewing + baking. My creative life.

Stitching with Intent

This year I am taking a different textile course, ‘Stitching with Intent’ which is run by Committed to Cloth. We have had our first session and we also had a pre-first session meeting both at Chequer Mead Arts Centre in East Grinstead.  Chequer Mead is a great venue with a huge studio for us to work in and it has a cafe which serves the most delicious food, however, in March or April we will be moving to the brand new pupose built textile studio in the barn conversion at Bovey Cottage.  Very exciting!

Here is my work in progress.  This year I am making church bannners and the first one is based on grace.  I am using fabric which I produced last year when I took ‘Wet n’ Wild’ with Committed to Cloth.  I am using the light box my husband made me to speed along the fairly time consuming job of tracing and cutting out letters.  I wanted to use typography and I enlarged the words to 500 on the computer and printed them.  Much easier than drawing and cutting out templates like in the old days!

Still got another two words to cut out.
