Gathering Memories is a textile/mixed media project in aid of the Alzheimer's Society. They are currently selling small Project Kits which allow you to create your own interpretation of memories through the medium of textiles and mixed media. Kit contains a tea dyed silk strand taken from an original installation work, together with backing cloth, Bondaweb, iron-on Vilene, a selection of beads, threads and a needle. You can either make something just for yourself, or you can donate it for an auction to be held later in the year. Much of the work will be exhibited at the Brockenhurst Needlework Fiesta (21-22 April). This piece comes from Maggie's book 'Tall Tales and Long Diaries', and is a very personal piece based on her grandfather's diary which he wrote during his life as a Royal Navy officer.

#Repost from @sewnbysunrise This GORGEOUS journal by Dawn Jeffs @sewnbysunrise is every quilters dream! ... Ta-dah! My 1st finish of 2018 the #starblazerpattern I've tested for @sariditty and @thequiltersplanner which is a brilliant cover for my 2018 #quiltersplanner I had no more 'deliberate' mistakes - phew, but I added a pieced pocket in the lining from my star scraps and another round of flying geese to the inside of the flap so I can see all @carolynfriedlander gorgeous fabrics when I'm using my planner! Great pattern Sarah! 👏👏👏 Follow @sariditty to watch out for the pattern release! #quiltersplanner2018 #qpbestyearever2018 #carolynfriedlanderfabrics #friedlanderfabric #konasolids #konacharcoal #quilting #flyinggeese #getorganized

Detail from Cliveden: Winter Vista by Jan Beaney. Machine embroidery on Solufix We love this piece, especially as it so closely resembles what's awaiting us outside on these cold wintery days! #textileart #textileartist #lovetextiles #artistsofinstagram #wowbook #maggiegrey #d4daisybooks #workshopontheweb #inspiration
Maggie Grey has discovered that joining crochet motifs with machine embroidery (using Solufix dissolvable film) sure beats stitching them by hand! #textileartist #textileart #artistsofinstagram #lovetextiles #inspiration #maggiegrey #wowbook #d4daisybooks #workshopontheweb
