Fibrefusion at The NEC, Birmingham, England

This weekend Fibrefusion , the Textile Art Group that I belong to, will be exhibiting at The National Exhibition Center, Birmingham, GB from Thursday the 25th - 28th March 2010 as part of 'The Sewing For Pleasure and Fashion and Embroidery Show' Fibrefusions extensive and very exciting exhibition can be found in Hall 12, stand ZM06. Please make sure to stop by and say hello :-)

Fibrefusion is an exhibiting group of textile artists who are tutored and mentored by Pauline Verrinder and we meet fortnightly just North of Cambrigde. The Aim of the group is to pursue excellence, based on a strong design foundation in all aspects of textile art and mixed media. We strive to share our expertise, passion and enthusiasm through exhibitions, demonstrations, publishing books and education

I will be heading down to the NEC tomorrow being part of the 'set up' team. That is so exciting and a bit daunting, as I've never done anything on this level before. Definitely a superb challenge that I'm so looking forward to. The piece included in this blog post will be on display as my 'touchy feely' piece. My other work on display is still a secret :-)

My big SewDanish week !

I have to share what has happened in the last week. Last Saturday morning I woke up to notifications from 'Statsy' that I had been featured on the Etsy Front page. When checking Craft Cult, imagine my surprise, when it turned out that I been featured twice on the FP during the night. Once in a front page treasury made by Dododesigns followed by a front page made by Etsy. My little mixed media ACEO got a lot of publicity.
Then during the week I reached my first big Etsy milestone, 1oo sales. My 100Th sale was to a fellow uwib'ber and Etsy friend. I know she won't mind me telling you :-)
RobinMariaPedrero Please, if you have a moment do check her etsy shop. It is full of beautiful art. But really, I'm so happy, over the moon to be more precise. I totally appreciate all the wonderful customers, new as well as returning, who has found my little shop over these past months.
And there is more.... When checking email tonight and looking through the 'Etsy Finds' newsletter, imagine my delight when all of a sudden my quilted journal cover with pink stars appeared in front of me. Yeah :-)
