News



At last.
The Exhibition at Astley Hall is up and looks amazing even though I say it myself. If you live anywhere in the vicinity it would be great to see you. Easy parking, nice cafe, lovely old Hall to view and then pop across to the Coach House Gallery upstairs for our exhibition.
70 pieces from 9 people. Mostly new works and some older ones.
Heres a bad view of the hall which is a gem.
 Here is the Coach House, newly restored and waiting for you!
My days for minding the exhibition are this coming Saturday, then 20th August, and 4th September.
I live quite nearby so I think I'll be popping in on other occasions.

Other plans for the summer: a week in Dorset. I had a bee in my bonnet about Dorset and have found a delightful little cottage which happens to be the home of a Textile artist. It was meant to be. We got a cancellation.
A trip to the Festival of Quilts on the Thursday is also booked, and a visit to the Royal Exchange theatre next week . Then its the big six-o.
Oh.

OK, about to show some real ignorance... where abouts is Chorley? I'd love to come but not sure if it's too far from me?

Hope it all goes really well though.

Good luck with the exhibition - it looks like a lovely venue - wish it wasn't so far away. I love Dorset and hope you have a great holiday, and that the weather will be kind to you.

Hope that the exhibition goes really well.
Dorset is a beautiful county, the place I escape too when ever I can. I am sure you will enjoy it. If it's west Dorset there is lots to see &do art/craft wise.

Hope the exhibition goes well. That photo of Astley Hall brought back memories as I went to Chorley Grammar School and the playing fields adjoined the park.

Well... I have just blogged (briefly) about our trip to... Dorset! It is a beautiful place, you will love it, as we always love the same places, don't we? And as you already know, Axminster is the place if you run out of big pants :-)

I know, Axminster is in Devon, but only just.
