Mountmellick meets disco - 1970's style

Monday 15th June
Preparations for our 40th anniversary exhibition in 2016 are well underway.  This month's meeting was devoted to 1976 and all the craft and embroidery work from that era.  We saw some lovely examples of Mountmellick cotton work, drawn thread work, shadow work and Assissi but the 1970's wouldn't be complete without macrame and disco coloured patchwork.

There were lots of magazines and books to share and eventually everyone found something to inspire them.  The challenge now is to create something approximately 12x12" for our XL Exhibition.  It can either be a re-interpretation of a 1970's classic or a piece with a Ruby colour theme.  Talk to Gail Marsh if you need any information or advice about the exhibition.

It was a fantastic day of shared memories and inspiration.
