Romsey Quilters and the Opening of My Exhibition at Ucheldre in Holyhead, Anglesey

A big thank you to Romsey Quilters who were so enthusiastic and made Daf and I feel very welcome. What a lively, organised group, it was a delight talking to you and the results from the ‘Notan’ workshop were lovely both in paper and when translated into fabric

Many thanks to Lin Arnold for these two photos.

I’d love to see more images of some quilted and finished pieces. It’s a long drive from Anglesey to Romsey but you made it all worthwhile.

We were struck by the lovely architecture which has been retained and looked after in Romsey and particularly enjoyed our walk round the Abbey – which is not only special architecturally but also contains some beautifully worked textiles, including the altar cloth which, we found out, was one of a set made by a founder member of Romsey Quilters. We also managed a short drive in the New Forest, which we thoroughly enjoyed – we especially loved a newly re-thatched roof which looked just perfect and some stunning pargetting. It all added to the joy of our visit. A long drive home, but we made it, safe and sound, if a little tired.

This Thursday, at 6:00pm is the opening of my exhibition ‘Emotions and Chocolates’ at Canolfan Ucheldre, Holyhead, so if you’re in the area, please come along.

Dorothy Russell Quilt exhibition at Ucheldre Centre, Anglesey

The exhibition runs from Friday 21st June – Wednesday 17th July and the Centre is open every day. It’s a great venue and there’s always something going on there, including live stage performances of drama and music; films, exhibitions and recently they started showing ‘live from’ operas and ballets – these are proving very popular around the country.

I hope that even if you can’t get to the opening of my exhibition, you’ll be able to see it before the 17th July.
