Gorgeous Liberty fabrics, handstiched quilts, ceramic and vintage buttons, felting, kitting, crochet, embroidery, textile art ... hundreds of stalls selling all things related to knit and stitch plus exhibitions, demos and workshops.

Here is my entry for the RA Summer Exhibition. 'Storm over London' ethereal cityscape painting. Created in oil/collage on 254 x 203 mm box canvas.

There are usually over 900,000 entries to this exhibition, so I will not be devastated if/when my entry isn't chosen. As an artist friend once said to me, 'you can never judge a judging panel'.
