The Knitting & Stitching Show, Oct 09 at the RDS

Just back from my trip to Dublin to the RDS Knitting & Stitching Show. I went along on Friday for the whole day with my sister and friends. Although it was uncomfortably hot in the hall, I still had a great day. My favourite part of the day is seeing the UK and Irish graduates' work and the exhibitions by guilds and professional artists. I loved the humour of Cindy Hickok's work ( And was blown away by the work of Kim Thittichai ( I was seduced by the selection of fabrics and prices at Rosenberg's stall and I got some lovely stuff for cushion covers at much better prices than I can get in Galway ( And a day at K&S would not be complete without buying a book or two at Art Van Go ( along with some 'inkaid' to experiment with printing on fabrics. Can't wait to get cracking on some new work watch this space.
