I've just today discovered how to personalize the news on Google + - impressive or wot!?
Anyhow one of the first things to drop into my personalized space was an article on a new textile collection.
Collected Threads: Textiles from the Shipley Craft Collection
"This exhibition brings together a range of exquisite textiles from the
Shipley’s craft collection. The pieces on show will give visitors the
chance to find out about the diversity of textile practice in the UK
from 1977 to present day, from embroidery and quilting to knitting and
weaving. The exhibition includes textiles by Amy Emms, Kaffe Fassett,
West Dean Tapestry Studio and Michael Brennand-Wood."
If you're in the area anything that brings together so many famous names in one place has to be worth a look, surely.
