Mixed Threads - An Exhibition

How WOW are these? These two fabulous works are by Elizabeth Low of Australia, posted here with her permission. These great landscapes are stitched by hand, believe it or not, and they are just beautiful. They are currently on exhibition at Rogues Gallery, Long Jetty, on the beautiful Central Coast if you want to see them for real.

Three groups of the Embroiderer's Guild of NSW got together to produce work for this exhibition. The Stitchers Plus group, which I am a member of, was one of those groups. We had an official opening last Saturday complete with food, wine, & speeches. A really great afternoon was had by all. It is an exciting feeling walking into a gallery & seeing your own work & the work of collegues gracing the walls. More pics to come.

Jenny, congrats on the exhibition. I'm constantly amazed at the standard of work produced by the EG members lately. Yes Elizabeth does amazing work too doesn't she? She had a small showing at a Linnwood Open once and we were so in awe, pity her prices were above what an average Linnwood patron can afford. I came close to buying something though, but I got called away and missed the chance. Robyn's work looks really interesting too, hope you are selling some pieces?
Hooroo, Christine.
