‘Threads of Memory’ group exhibition

We held a group exhibition at the Haworth Art Gallery in Accrington in April and May 2019 which was officially opened by the Mayor and Mayoress of Hyndburn. 

Over 100 pieces of work were included in the exhibition which filled most of the available gallery space. The works in this exhibition were produced by members of Ribble Creative Stitchers in response to their own personal memories, some from the distant past, others from more recent experiences. The inspiration for each piece may have been an image or picture, a memory of a person or place, or a feeling or emotion.

A few of our members are relatively new to creative textiles, so some of their works were memories of workshops they have attended to explore new textiles, materials and techniques.

We were delighted to receive many complimentary comments from visitors during the exhibition and also had a lot of interest shown on our website and social media pages resulting in a good number of new members joining us.
