The Living Threads Embroidery Group exhibit in Nottingham...

The Living Threads is a textile group whose aims are to produce exciting and innovative work using fibres, threads, yarns, fabrics and beads in a variety of techniques.
The Living Threads Group was formed in 1982. It has evolved into a group of 65 artists.
An exhibition of members work is staged at Trent College, Long Eaton, Nottingham every two years.
Many of their artists pass on their enthusiasm, knowledge and skills through workshops which are held twice a year.
Last week I visited the exhibition at Trent College, and the range of work on display is simply stunning. Although, I wasn't allowed to take general photographs of the work on display, a couple of members gave me permission to take a few snaps for my blog.
Beverley Beatie, loves all things woolly! From knitting, wet felting and embellishing, and her textured work is gorgeous. Bev's love of wool, sparked her online business Knitting 4 Fun, where she also sells our felting machine the FM725. ... she also has a great Facebook page to keep up with the latest news and products.

Carol Hampton, who kindly spent a few minutes with me to tell me about the group and it's history, likes to work with textured fabrics and free machine embroidery.

And Marie Meacham, enjoys the machine embroidery to create the most wonderful wall hangings.

Much of the work on display is available to buy, and would be a great addition to any house.

The exhibition is running from 22nd - 30th April at Trent College in Long Eaton, Nottingham.
