“The female form” is a theme very close to our hearts as all of us here in the office are of the fairer sex and majority of our students are too! We wanted to acknowledge this in some way, so we have a Facebook competition running on this theme which will be open to entries from 19th January 2012 and will close to entries at midnight GMT on 8th March 2012.
There have been some amazing pieces of textile art produced featuring the female form in some way—think Alice Kettle from her site HERE or Rachael Howard's site HERE. Go to our FB site to upload a photo of any textile you have produced that features a woman (or bits of a woman!) at SST's Facebook Group HERE
There's a lovely book called Sew Pretty Homestyle as a prize for the winner.
