Exciting news: Meet Your Maker and EPM

Despite being laid low most of last week (I really, really hate migraines), it was surprisingly good work-wise!  I can’t share all of it with you now, but the next 12 months is beginning to shape up nicely.
Holmwood House

First up, I heard on Friday afternoon that I had been selected as the Maker for ‘Meet Your Maker’ at Holmwood House, a National Trust for Scotland property.  It’s a project being run by CraftScotland.  It is always nice when your proposals are accepted, but I’m really thrilled as Holmwood was designed by Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson, who was born in the village where I live.  You can read about my visit to Holmwood in this blogpost:  He was inspired by Ancient Greece too and the building has a lovely feel to it.  So please come along and see how I make on Sunday 23rd November.

Secondly, I know I’ve been posting lots about the European Patchwork Meeting, which I went to in September.  I’ve still got loads more images to share, so I may just do one large post with them all, as it is now ages after the event.  It’s tricky trying to balance the time to blog with studio work, especially when the studio work is going well!  In addition to just wanting to see the show, I had an ulterior motive to visit as I’m very proud to announce that I am one of the exhibitors in the 2015 Show.  I was blown away by the quality and variety of work on display this year and looking at the list of artists for next year, I am in illustrious company – you should book your flights now!

And finally a teaser – there were a number of other exciting developments, one totally out of the blue, but until they are signed on the dotted line I can’t really say anything.  Hope your week was as good.

Congratulations on EPM! I will be in Europe in early to mid-September, riding my bike from Berlin to Copenhagen. Maybe I should detour to France before I return to Canada.

Thanks Chris. You really should try and get to the EPM - it is a marvellous show and from such a different perspective to the US ones. Also I noticed there was an off road cycle track all the way up the valley. I think it followed the route of the former railway - serendipity?

Congratulations on both counts. I can't get to EPM next year as I'm going to the SAQA conference but I have it pencilled in for 2016.

Thanks Maggi. Shame you won't be there, but hopefully I'll see you at the Festival of Quilts and you will have an amazing time at the SAQA Conference
