HAND MADE IN ENGLAND. KateWhiteheadTextiles‬ © 2015 Kate

Phewww I have just finished my last creative stitch for my next show  the 'Made In England' stand MIE 1 @ The Festival Of Quilts @ The NEC.  There are a few days to go until it is time to set up my stand but I am taking a short break, before Summer whizzes past. There will just be enough time to pack, label, press and panic. 
I would be lying if at times it hadn't crossed my mind to ship my designs and ideas abroad to have stock made cheaper and quicker than making, dyeing,embroidering and weaving each piece and sewing every stitch myself. Something always stops me, I think it is that I would know that I hadn't put my whole self into each piece. The downside is that the prices of my textile pieces reflect the time and effort I put in to my creative practice. The upside is I am very happy to have been chosen to exhibit on the 'Made In England' stand and delighted to have just received an email from Selvedge magazine which says they have chosen me to highlight the Great Northern Contemporary Craft Show 2015 in their September/October issue.KateWhiteheadTextiles‬ © 2015 Kate Whitehead
