Strands of time

Today I was thinking of the enormous amount of work that’s gone into edge-textile artists and the love and joy of the members who’ve kept our particular dream alive. And it has been a lot of years and exhibitions just to reach this point.

There are so many members who immediately spring to mind but perhaps today, the focus could be on Helen Hill – someone who has quietly worked away before being a committee member, did her three years stint and then offered to stay on to help out as the ‘Birnam’ link and minute secretary so 5 years altogether while, and I hope she won’t mind me saying, coping with MS.There are so many members like Helen who add together to make such a sold base of talent and commitment – and that gives edge it’s ‘edge’.

And not only that, her work has improved with each exhibition – wonder woman indeed! Here’s a piece from her myths and legends series on Corryvreckan.
