Nolitex

After yesterday's blog you wouldn't think I would want anymore inspiration would you?  However, on the grounds that I like their work and couldn't miss an opportunity to see it my friend and I went to Lincoln to the Sam Scorer gallery near Lincoln Castle.



Nolitex is made up of artists from Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire and they are a group of very talented ladies.


The ladies stewarding very kindly allowed me to take a couple of long shots of the exhibition.  The Nolitex site has one or two photos of the exhibits and you may find more on the members' blogs that are listed there.


You can probably see that the work is very varied with machine embroidery, felting, needle felting, knitting, printing and dyeing, hand stitching, wrapped stones, wrapped driftwood and 3d work with moulding mesh all making an appearance. 

If you live within reach of the gallery the exhibition is on until Sunday so there is still time to visit.  If you don't live locally they are hoping the exhibition will tour and some of it will be on display next Spring at the NEC at the Embroidery Show (used to be the Madeira Show).
