The 3 artworks on display in this exhibition were designed and constructed by Helen Birmingham.  All the individual elements were made by members of The Stitchbook Collective under Helen's guidance and tuition. The collective has over 200 members based all over the country, and we work together via a members only website and a printed monthly magazine called The Stitchbook. Threads, fabrics and instructions for our projects are distributed and returned via the post.
