Worn threads again

Today Marion Robertson, Jane Bonney, Carol Newton, Carol's husband Bob and the Thoughtful Man helped to set up the Worn Threads exhibition at the West Country Quilt and Textile Show.
The show is on Friday 11th November 2016
Saturday 12th November 2016
Sunday 13th November 2016
10.00am - 4.30pm

My photos are a bit blurry, but here is a little idea of what our space looks like.
Because they gave us 3 battens across corners, we were able to hang some of the work so both sides could be seen. It gives a lot of movement as they gently move on the end of the fishing line from which they are suspended.
Unfortunately, we didn't have enough space for everything.
However, there was an extra return panel near the centre which we convinced them to leave. (Normally used for holding up the long walls while the space is being built.) Because it was next to a socket, we were able to plug in Kate Findlay's piece so her LED system could be seen. (See top photo) Then my Kamlaika piece was hung on the other side. We also had 1 outside wall that we were able to hang 2 pieces on.
Jane Bonney's cope would have been a great addition, but it is travelling with the Knitting and Stitching Shows at present because she won first place in the Quilts Creation section.

Thanks so much for all the helpers. Especially the Thoughtful Man who took time off work because I have hurt my back and could not face trying to drive to Bristol and then lift and shift boxes and work!
