November Meeting- Talk by textile artist Sarah Impey

18-11-2018

Words are what talented textile artist Sarah Impey loves to work with. Drawing on her career as a political journalist, Sarah's incredible quilts are filled with the words that inspire her. In her own words,Sarah states 'I am interested in the stitched word: the point at which the visual, verbal and textural come together.' 

Sarah's quilt designs are very original and unique, pushing the boundaries of what a quilt actually is to the extreme. She has exhibited her quilts extensively, both at home and abroad,and anyone who hasn't seen her impressive textile art,when you do,unlike Sarah you will be lost for words.

Our own talented members shared some of their beautiful quilts with us too.

Our members have also been busy making quilts for Project Linus, and I am sure these beautiful and colourful quilts will bring some much needed comfort to children who are experiencing difficulty in their young lives.
