Textile Artist

Textile Artist at http://www.textileartist.org/ is an online community for  artists working with textile techniques as well as  art enthusiasts. It was started last October by Samuel and Joseph Pitcher, the sons of 62 Group member Sue Stone. Its a great site to read interviews with contemporary textile artists and to be inspired and to keep up with whats happening in the textile calendar. Today they published a feature on my Memento Mori series of work which some of you who follow my blog might not be aware about. Read about it HERE.

Bleak Mid Winter

It is bleak here in the North East today. The other day I was starting to think of Spring, chitting potatoes etc but we have returned to winter with sleet and snow and being quite happy sitting inside!

Vintage Leather and Fabric Industrial Stags Head Chair

Those of you who have visited my web site www.mandypattullo.co.uk might have seen the stitched drawing of a stag's head on the home page. Before Christmas I sold this to Ormston Saint Home and Garden  in order for them to realise an idea to make old industrial furniture even more exciting. Now the dream has been realised and here it is for sale through their company which also does other delicious interesting furniture, architectural and global finds.  Follow this link

In my studio I am doing what I like best patching odd bits and pieces together and then embroidering over the top. I am about to sign a contract with 2 other textile artists Ali Rhind and Jane Fraser  for a big exhibition over the summer months at the beautiful Fairfield Mill in Cumbria. This is the type of thing I will be showing but mixing a few old pieces in too which need to be seen again.
