A fresh mix at textile exhibition

a STITCH ‘n Mix Textile Exhibition titled High Days and Holidays is to be held at Cromford Mill from Saturday, April 30 to Thursday, May 5.

Stitch ‘n Mix is a textile arts group that formed around a group of students who met while doing City & Guilds textile courses at Derby College in 2004. They did not want to lose touch with each other and met to share their ideas and view each other’s work for some time, and then felt the common aim of an exhibition would keep the group focused.

After the success of their first exhibition, titled The Derwent Valley and its Heritage Trail, Stitch ‘n Mix are delighted to be returning to Cromford Mill. Between them, the group members weave, spin, dye, patchwork and produce mixed media textiles and print.

This new exhibition promises to be an explosion of colour from around the world.

Entrance is free and it is open from 10am-4.30pm daily.
