This diverse exhibition opened on Tuesday and we had our official preview this weekend. Here are some pics of the work in situ. There really is some beautiful work, if you feel like coming to see it (you really should!) the show runs until Sunday 29th May and it's open Tuesday-Sunday 10am-4pm at The Old Chapel Textile Centre, Main Street, New Greenham Park, Newbury, RG19 6HW.

New pieces: Spring, Autumn, Summer and Winter
