We Have done it!

We have shown our first exhibition as Room6 at the ‘Fashion, Embroidery and Stitch’ show organised by ICHF and held at the NEC in Birmingham 17-20 March 2016.

It was a huge success and will now travel to the ArtVanGo gallery in Knebworth for most of July, opening on 4th July.  If anyone would like to have our ‘6 Shades of Grey’ exhibition at their venue, please do contact any one of us and let us know. Meanwhile we are starting to plan our next body of work for exhibition…

It’s time for one of my favourite shows of the year, it’s the Knitting and Stitching show which has now moved onto Harrogate and spells the last show of the year for me.

Four of the six members of Room 6 will be attending this show …. Caroline Bell, Alison Hulme and myself will be performing on the Artist in Action stand for Art Van Go, throughout the weekend, and Helen Sill will be on the Embroiderer’s Guild graduate showcase stand talking to all visitors. The show starts next Thursday and runs through to Sunday evening at 17.00 at the Conference Centre at the bottom of town… The shops in Harrogate itself will be wonderful as it is now the approach to Christmas, and tea at Betty’s is always a pleasure, not least their Fat Rascals!

Do pop by and see what we are up to, see you there
