Alumni on show

Out of the Fold are proud to have been selected as the guest exhibitors at the Creative Stitch Suffolk City and Guilds Graduate Show in Wickham Market on Sat 25th and Sun 26th June 2016

Out of the Fold was initially formed, ten years ago, of students graduating from City and Guilds courses in patchwork and quilting and have been joined through the years by others with qualifications in creative embroidery and other textile crafts. OOTF members have since all gone on to develop their skills and to make work in their own style.

We wish this new set of Graduates the best of luck for the future and look forward to following their textile careers.

Karen and Helen published!

The new book by Val Holmes includes work by Out Of the Fold members Helen Marchant and Karen Frost. 

Published May 2016
 Helen made 'Priscilla' for the Out of the Fold Gallery at the Knitting and Stitching Show in 2014 where it was seen by Val Holmes, then preparing her book on Experimental Corsets, who asked Helen if it may be included in the book. Here she is looking rather fabulous.

At the same show Val saw the beautiful fairytale jacket created by Karen and asked her to create a brand new and unique corset in a similar style for her book. Inspired by the Fairy Queen from A Midsummer's Nights Dream this is the result.

'Experimental Corsets' is published by Batsford and is available now
