Creative Stitch and Toy Hacker

Once again we’re bringing a dual exhibition which caters to a wide range of interests. We aim to motivate the visitors and sow the seeds of creativity, so come along and see something inspiring.

We will have a collection of the ‘Creative Stitch’ mixed media pieces which use both hand and machine stitch, fabrics and various other materials. Many of the pieces have been created as entries for the Yorkshire and Humberside Embroiderers’ Guild Challenges. There will be some of the favorites from last year – such as ‘Underground’, ‘Anchors Aweigh’ and ‘ Dry Stone Walls’, as well as exciting new pieces.

There will be the opportunity for visitors to try out various hand stitches which they may wish to develop further once they are home.

We will also bring a selection of automatons, some crowd-pleasers from last year and some new ones too.  The automatons includes models built with Meccano, Lego and Knex as well as lolly sticks and skewers to show a range of possible ideas. See old toys with new eyes, even broken things may, with a bit of imagination, turn into something new!
