Country Mouse goes to Town

From Hawick to Glasgow and Edinburgh and then Galashiels over the next four days.
Tonight it's the third Indian Inspired community workshop at Borders Textile Towerhouse, where we are all embroidering bright and cheerful squares to assemble into a bold banner quilt. Until you've tried it, you have no idea how much fun grown women (and a few men) can have with sequins!

Tomorrow is the start of a ReSIde gathering where Jeni, Swati, Murji and I are all hitting Glasgow to see some talented contemporary textile artists and designers, and then sample the delights of a well known Indian restaurant...

On Saturday I am whizzing back to Edinburgh to participate in the first ever Edinburgh Yarn Festival. It's shaping up to be a tremendous event with masses of quality makers and sellers, and I am really looking forward to it. From 10 till 5 at the Out of the Blue, just off Leith Walk.

Back to Glasgow in the evening to catch up with the others, then more culture on Sunday which will include a tour of Glasgow School of Art's iconic Mackintosh-designed buildings.

Home again Sunday night then we're off to Galashiels on Monday for an all day workshop with the art class at the Academy!
