Stitch in 9 – A Decade of Stitch
18 March 2016 - 30 April 2016
This exhibition is in the Granary
Stitch-in-9 are a group of artists who met whilst studying for the City and Guilds Embroidery and Textile qualification in the North East of England. The group was formed in 2006 following the completion of the course, when it was decided that we would like to continue our enjoyment of embroidery and textile, to develop our techniques and interests further. Originally there were nine members in the group hence the play on words “Stitching” and “Stitch-in-9”.
Over time our group has attracted new members and we now have 12 committed and enthusiastic textile artists. We can truly call our group multi-national as one lives in France but still contributes through the wonders of modern technology.
2016 is our 10th year together, to celebrate this we have produced 'A Decade of Stitch'which is a selection of some of our work over this period including many new examples not previously exhibited.
