A Sense of Place
15th Mar 2016 - 24th Apr 2016
Preston Threads are a thriving, contemporary textile group who share a common passion for textile art.

Their exhibition, ‘A Sense of Place’ is the result of a group challenge to create a piece of work to fit a specified sized frame.

The result is a collection of interesting pieces in which each member has explored their own interpretation of the theme. The pieces are worked in a variety of techniques and displayed in simple frames.

Alongside this members are exhibiting their own personal work which is very varied and includes knitting, collage, construction and simple stitch. Group Members:

Margaret Abraham, Norma Balaam, Chris Cannon, PamEccles, Seonaid Elliott, Pat Fisher, Mary Fisher, Sandra Kedzlie, Joyce Preston and Sue Reeve.
