Goodbye ! Warm and hearty greetings of Djesbeeb from the Netherlands
Thank you sharon for taking the time to comment on my bullions. I was fortunate enough to do a workshop with Effie Mitrofanis one time I was visiting Townsville and secured a vacancy...it was a wonderful experience.
Hi Sharon, thanks for the photo, how I miss `my boys`n ow they are living in Australia, they have not been back to England for over two years now, they keep saying to visit them but it is over 10 years since my last visit to Australia, maybe I will return one day.
If you get to go to a show in England when you are here you will meet Sarah Peter`s sister and Vatran his brother in law who Peter and I worked for.
Great to read your blogs, do not have a blog and to be honest do not know how to get one or anything but like visiting Australia might get round to understandong one day!
Hi Sharon, yes the show is every march, there are 3 exhibitions one, sewing for pleasure, fashion and stitch, and hobbycrafts. Unfortunately paper craft has taken over here and a lot of companies no longer do the shows, but it is still wortyh visiting, have professionals showing their work etc. There is also a show in London at Olympia organised by Twister Thread but likewise not as good as it used to be, I can recall taking £7000 in one day for the people I was working for who were selling cross stitch kits etc but those days have long gone.
I used to work for a company called Sew it all who sell all the fabric for stitching, they now do the shows in Australia, two lovely lads Peter and Wayne I am sure you must have come across them, they say the shows are going the same way in Australia as here and is is hard to make ends meet, I am sure the tide will turn, I suppose if we were honest we all have more than enough stashed at home to keep us going for ever and a day.
Hi Sharon, the NEC is an exhibition centre in Birmingham (England) there is going to be a stitching and craft show, if you look up ICHF international craft and hobby fair you should be able to find it. ICHF are one of the better show organisers, really looking forward to going, used to work at the shows prior to my retirement , have come out of retirement for this show helping. Nordic Needlecraft of Inverness whio I have designed a few kits for.
The cushion Blenheim is based on Blenheim Palace, done as one of my pieces when I was doing City and Guilds, a part one piece, it is filled with lavender
A hearty Thank you! for the comment on that funny little doily...bemused to see which pieces attract attention, sometimes I don't see it coming at all. Thank you, also, for all the time and work you put into the S*F network, as well as into the TAST weekly posts...you must be so efficient and organized! I seem to lose half the week just working the TAST samples! LOL
Hello Sharon, thank you so much for your Christmas and New Year's whishes and thank you so much for this wonderful site on which many of us feel so "at home" with so many possibilities. I want to return all my heartfelt wishes. Especially I wish your daughter much success in her gorgeous project.
