Embroidery Exhibition, Cape Town

If you are in and around Cape Town this week, do take a drive along the coast of the Peninsula to Fish Hoek and the embroidery exhibition that is open until Saturday at the Fish Hoek Civic Centre. I took a few quick photos this morning just before the exhibition opening to give you an idea of some of what you can see.

What to do with yellow fabric? - The Yellow Fabric Challenge

A prize-winning smocked ring pillow with garter, a wedding sampler and two wedding veils amidst other fine embroideries.

The sales table for sewing supplies and small gifts

Work in Progress - Embroiderers will sit stitching their projects at the WIP tables

A selection of work donated for sale by the family of the late Magda Sprenger, co-founder of the Cape Embroiderers' Guild.

The band sampler challenge - 12 samplers in progress and one completed - all using the same pattern yet each one so very different and fascinating to look at.

These are just some of the breathtaking embroideries on show at the exhibition. I'll post more photos tomorrow.
