It’s that time of year…
Thank goodness for the Year of the Rabbit. I can now say “happy new year” without feeling awfully late. Like another rabbit we know, a Not-So-White Rabbit as I often make them, the ones that fall down rabbit holes with no notice. Or is that just me?
Now, where was I? ah yes.
Well, things suddenly got awfully busy, and the first exhibition of the year is charging up behind me like a white rhino thinking David Attenborough is going to give them a googie. A googie is all those snuggly tickly nice things that animals like, preferably accompanied by a biscuit. I quite like googies myself. My laptop doesn’t, as it has no idea how to spell it, and keeps trying to make it something it can understand.
I am of course suddenly bashing out this blog update when I should be doing something else (number one business of this hour is walking and googying the Dog That Isn’t Mine) but I know if I don’t do it now, I’ll not do it, so I’m afraid it will be what it will be. And the whole point of this post is to say that the Profanity Embroidery Group annual exhibition is on VERY soon.
This year the group is tackling Domesticity in our embroidery. We are also extremely delighted to have participated in an Open Call with Vanessa Marr’s Domestic Dusters project, and can’t wait to hang up all the fabulous dusters we are receiving from all over the World! The PEG exhibition will as usual be in the Fishslab Gallery, and the Open Call Dusters will be in our favourite gin bar, The Twelve Taps.
The exhibition opens at The Fishslab from Wednesday 15th February to Monday 20th February 2023, daily 10am to 5pm.
The dusters at The Twelve Taps also opens on Wednesday 15th February, but being a bar, does not open until 1pm, but stays open until late. On the 16th, the bar is open 1pm to 10pm, on the 17th and 18th, 1pm to midnight, and then on Sunday 19th, from 3pm to 9pm. The dusters will remain at the Taps until the end of the month, but please do check the opening times before setting out to visit, as they do vary.
Do come and visit the exhibitions – there really is some fabulous stitchery and swearery on show. (Of course if you don’t find Profanity Embroidery entertaining, then please do stay away).
