June Meeting

What an entertaining and informative evening we had with Alison Hulme on the 5th June.  Alison was a humorous and engaging speaker: not one quilt was held up but so many projects were there and referred to in detail in her talk entitled "My Life in Print".  We were allowed to handle any of the quilts and look closely at them at the end.

Each work had a story and gave us an insight into how Alison's life and work as a textile artist evolved.  Her work is frequently exhibited and she produces unique fabric by experimenting with new prints and ideas.

Examples of her work.

June Speaker

The Speaker for May is Alison Hulme and her talk is entitled "My Life in Print".
Alison finished her Foundation Degree in 2013 and had great success selling her Bags and Pinnies at the Exhibition, she has since featured them in a number of venues  including the Knitting Stitching show at Alexandra Palace, The Designer Guild Shop at Pall Mall Galleries and the ICHF show at NEC Birmingham.
Exhibiting means she has had the chance to meet a great number of new people. She really enjoys sharing her enthusiasm through her talks and workshops.  
She is constantly getting new ideas for designs and this keeps her busy printing new fabrics. She has great fun trying out the new prints. 
She has been a member of Zero Nine Textile Artists since the group began. They were all at college together doing their City and Guilds. Since then they have exhibited together as well as doing their own exhibitions and work.
