Fibre East 2012 – Come and say Hi!
The Spindependence crew found their feet at Fibre East last year, with the help of Outward Images. This year they have their own stand and their friends from Creating Space will be joining them on the stand, so come along and say hi!
They’ll be in Marquee C , tucked into the corner with a treasure trove of artisan created work in the continually evolving Spindependence fibre exhibit. Some of the work will be for sale for you to walk away with on the day, some will be displayed for the duration of the event and posted to you later, just like a regular gallery.
The boring but necessary bit – Spindependence are sorry they can’t accept cards payments on the day, but you will be able to leave your details with them and be invoiced via paypal at the end of the event, and your goodies posted to you as soon as your payment clears. The same applies to cheques over the value of £30.
There will be pieces from all of the Spindependence contributing artists, as well as work from their friends from Creating Space.
Joining Lyn on the Spindependence stand this year are Jo, Lesley and Norma. They’re bringing together Jo’s Secret Spinner seductive handspun lace and fingering weight yarn, Lyn’s Lindi indigo dyed silk and woollen scarves and lace weight yarns, Lesley’s FibreTastic hand spun yarn and necklaces – feather light and colourful to the extreme, and hand woven scarves and knits by Norma from Kaleidoscope. To complement these they are presenting hand-made spinner’s tools, shawl pins, threads and Machelle from Chopped Tomatoes’ wonderful recipes.knit knitter’s design journals.
They are giving back this year by selling handmade brooches of interlinked circles for their nominated charity, Macmillan.
