A little while ago I visited the beautiful Heart Gallery in Hebden Bridge, as I really wanted to visit the 'Fibre' exhibition because so many of my textile heroes were exhibiting there.
Just look at these wonderful characters made by the Cat In The Shoe, I love their little boots and serene expressions.
The dreamy moons have been my favourite for such a long time, it was lovely to see them in the flesh.
Marna Lunt's stunning stitched portrait paintings were so luscious and rich.
I am a real fan-girl of Marna's work, she uses the needle just like a paint brush.
These three-dimensional embroideries amazed me, I couldn't believe how intricate and detailed they were.
Lucy Pendrick's needle-felted creatures were so full of life and character, and her stories about them were captivating.
The magical dancing hedgehog really stole my heart...
If you get the chance to visit this exhibition I cannot recommend it highly enough.
I have only mentioned a few of the artists as there is such a lot of beautiful textile art featured in the show.
There is also so much to see in the Heart Gallery, it is like a treasure-filled sanctuary where everything is beautifully curated and displayed.
The Heart Gallery.
