The next chapter...

Seems like lots has been changing round our way recently, Lara left the flock for pastures new + Justin and Graeme joined the team. We were VERY sad to see Lara go but also very excited by the fresh blood and enthusiasm Justin and Graeme bring, they are already shining bright after only a few weeks!

Last week we opened out latest show Applique, an exhibition of fantastic textiles by Jane Smallcombe. The reaction to the show was great and people showed their appreciation by buying lots of the work on the opening night.

You can see more of the the exhibition on our flickr page
