“There is a lot of textile art going on in the world that is different to the more intricate and fine embroidery work of previous years. When I was at school we were doing cross stitch and things like that whereas now, there are so many more fabrics available, with sparkles and threads, and all sorts of people do different things."

The exhibition will be pen on Friday from 10am-4.30pm and Saturday from 10am - 4pm. There will be light refreshments and a sales table. Admission costs £3.00.
