New designers

Last weekend I went to the New Designers exhibition in Islington - I try to go every year to see how all the old Altonians are getting on - lots this year! Lovely work as ever, but it is just too much to take in, in just a couple of hours - need days - this year I was distracted by the fact that I was heading up Upper Street and beyond to spend some time with my new nephew - well gorgeous baby and Carluccio's macaroons are hard to get your mind off! It is also frustrating that you get pounced upon whenever you get your camera out - so aside from my girls I just didn't bother - it is so tiresome explaining the blog! But here are a few sneaky ones from the gallery!!

The very red-haired and semi Canadian Anna Burridge - print at Falmouth

The calmness of Sam Brett  - woven textiles at Nottingham Trent

The very clever Leanne Miles - print at Winchester

The GORGEOUS Hannah Cousins - print at Winchester

The madness that is Kirsten Palmer - print at Bucks

The demure Lizzie Bills - print at Bucks

The ever cheery Kate white - knit at Bucks - She and I had a drink with the lovely Sam Towner - nice surprise to see him too!

Louise Dormer is also an ex-student of mine - sadly I missed her at ND so didn't get a pick - even more annoyingly we were both on the same bloody train home and only found out when were getting off! DOH!!! Still we had a chat and here is a pick form her blog to share with you...
Louise did surface at Leeds.

Here are a few others who I liked enough to pick up their details.....

In the one year on part of the show I admired the work of Harriet Pearse

And bought from Amy Logan - just couldn't help myself and nor should you - my necklace has already been hugely admired and I just love it!
