Velvet

Mary continues to explore the theme of the weaving industry in her work and this piece 'Velvet' is inspired by the way that velvet is woven and then sliced through with wires to create the pile.

This 4 metre long piece, which uses 4000 (yes thousand) metres of thread will be on show at the 'Drawn Thread' exhibition at The Guildhall, Bury St Edmunds from Wed 20th until Sun 24th May 2020

New banner

There are twelve members of Out of the Fold and co-incidentally twelve letters in our group name. So last year each member was allocated a letter and asked to create a stitched version in their own style.  Lynne Pretty put it all together and  it is now ready to be revealed to the world.

The banner can be seen as part of the forthcoming exhibition 'Drawn Thread' at The Guildhall, Bury St Edmunds from 20th - 24th May 2020
