Archive for the ‘Sew as I go’ Category

Sew as I go, at Artisan’s on Lewis, Mudgee was everything I wanted, a gorgeous gallery, my body of work professionally and carefully curated, enthusiastic gallery goers, family and friends, the most heavenly wine from the sponsor, Pieter van Gent and an array of red dots.

To be playful I themed up for my exhibition and wore a, Lady and the Unicorn, tapestry  printed skirt.

Mudgee is a 4 hours drive from Sydney, it’s over the Blue Mountains and into the Central West. For all those that couldn’t make it to the opening I’ve posted a photo collage. Sew as I Go, runs until September 16th, so if you’re up for quintessential wineries, colonial buildings and friendly Mudgee folk take the trip and visit.

The name Tapestry Girl is playful and I like to dip into playfulness when things get too industrious. Textile art draws on creativity, skillfulness and industriousness. It’s easy to get bogged down in the mechanical side of life but when I remember to be lighthearted, grateful and playful, it feels like magic happens.

Life is busy, I have a day job, kids and a house to manage, my needlepoint tapestry is portable, so I sew as I go, it’s part of my playful project. It’s fun and rewarding to find interesting, challenging and gorgeous places to sew. People ask me how I get it all done, the key for me, is to remember to be playful and to sew as I go.

I loved working with KPC Yarn and felt connected to the pop up space in Paddington. The workshops were a hub of creativity and exploration of the needlepoint tapestry medium. I’m thinking of more making, more workshops and of creating kits, watch this space x

I Love needle point tapestry because I can sew as I go…. some places that I sew….
