She did What?!

Well, there went 6 weeks and last Saturday the Quilt Museum closed its doors for the last time.  Lots of museum friends arrived on the final day so it wasn’t as sad as it might have been  AND there was lots of cake and even some bubbly!

On Monday and Tuesday of this week I was in to help take the Art Quilt exhibition down and get it all packed up ready to be sent off to its next destination.IMG_2740

 

 

That was sad, as the room emptied out not to be filled again.IMG_2746

Now, a potted ‘what else has been going on’ 🙂

I designed these Goth dolls that proved to be very popular and if you visit York School of Sewing on Facebook and scroll down, you will see lots and lots of pictures of all that went on that week.

End of an era

I have spent a very happy two days in the Quilt Museum helping to set up the next – but sadly the last, exhibition.  It has been really hard work, but the gallery looks amazing.  It is full of art quilts and the title is ‘Quilt Art Dialogues’.  In the Bailey Gallery are quilts from the Guild collection, many of which haven’t been seen before.

If you can, do come and see it.  It will be your last chance to experience this amazing building and the quilts within it.  I’m afraid there is to be no photography, so I can’t show you.  The exhibition runs from tomorrow until 31 October, then its all over.
