This was a piece I had in our exhibition in Stroud last October.It was a freehand drawing with the machine of stylised pods,just thread on cotton organdie..The RWA had an open entry for their 'DRAWN' exhibition which opened on the weekend.They listed textiles as one of the mediums they would accept ,so I decided enter.Unfortunately I was rejected but will be interested to see how many textile pieces will be on exhibition.In the last few years they have loosened a little and there have been textile exhibits.One of GTA's members had hers chosen for the Autumn exhibition,she too was rejected this time.Just have to keep trying to get textiles taken seriously.

What a super drawing Jen! I like drawing with the sewing machine too, but so far have not managed to do anything up to your standard.
