Capability Brown Exhibition at Fountains Abbey
Monday 11th July 2016
A day trip to Fountains Abbey to see the Embroiderers' Guild and Capability Brown Festival. The exhibition is part of a countrywide initiative to mark the 300th anniversary of the birth of the designer who changed the national landscape and created a style which has shaped people's picture of the quintessential English countryside.
Skipton Branch decided to create a composite picture of a temple in the grounds of Fountains Abbey to reflect the many and varied styles of stitching that exist within the group. It is a stunning piece of work and truly represents the skills of the group. Special thanks go to Sue Ingles for her artistic direction and organisation and to Enid Pyrah for quilting the final piece.
