It was lovely to see so many familiar faces and new ones at the Midland last night. I lost count of the number of people who came up and said “thank you so much for bringing the Tapestry back – I’ve really missed it!”
There were, as always, some amazing WIPs on the go, from Jo-ann’s beautifully delicate cross stitch
To Collette’s designs for a future mosaic house number
and Michelle’s detailled wire wrapped pendant, just waiting for a gemstone!
We introduced our neighbours to the concept of Craftivism, and some of the projects currently underway. #fortheloveof is a lovely simple project which sees fabric hearts embellished to demonstrate what it is you love, so you can literally wear your heart on your sleeve.
We talked to lots of people about their passions, and gave away lots of handouts to encourage people to look into what the craftivist collective do. If you want to find out more, check out their website.
Our next Tapestry is Monday 26th October – it will be here sooner than you think! Can’t wait!
