Cromford Mills Exhibition

At long last, the Thread of Life Exhibition is on public display. I was so relieved last Friday when the work was finally hung and looking great all together. It was also the first time I had seen my cross-stitch (also called The Thread of Life) unravelled, and it was tense as I crossed my fingers that it would work. And it did work beautifully!


I feel that this piece in the centre of the room really draws all of the other work together around the central theme of the Thread of Life.

We held a private view on Friday 1st April in the evening, and many of the people who attended were contributors to the project. It was lovely to catch up with people I met at workshops, and other who I have never met but have had email contact with. It was also attended by the Mayor of Matlock and his wife.


There are 83 DNA works by contributors, each one different and individual. Keep an eye on my website as I upload more images of the exhibition.

I’d like to say a huge thank you to Michael Borkowsky and Gill Alderson for going to so much trouble to help me hang the exhibition, as well as all of the wonderful staff at Cromford Mills for the help and expertise.
The Thread of Life will be at Cromford Mills Gallery until 14th April 2016 and is FREE.
