From the main Twisted Thread website -
The exhibition at Harrogate included a lot of pieces inspired by the British landscape. Initially, this piece, 'Pink House' was my favourite - I like the way value and texture is achieved by patterning in black and white.
I like the areas of flat colour given texture by the carpet pile.
There was far more wool/fibre at this show than the last time I attended several years ago. About six years ago, the show seemed to be going towards scrapbooking and papercrafts, and before that there was a LOT of cross stitch, so it's good to see it becoming more fibre oriented again. There were so many gorgeous yarns and rovings, so plenty of materials to inspire, plus the quilting side of K & S seemed to be back to strength. We enjoyed meeting friends from other shows but from the other side of the table this time. A good day out and we were there the whole day.
