About Fen Edge Stitched Textiles
The group was started in September 2002 and they meet six Saturdays a year at Cottenham Village College with their mentor, Pauline Verrinder. Advanced textile artiists go through a selection process to gain entry to the group, with no restrictions on where they live.
FEST has 15 members who are mainly from the east at present. The group aims to raise the profile of textile art by sharing and encouraging the personal development of its members work, and to extend their experience by exhibiting regularly both locally and nationally. Above all they indulge their passion for textiles and share it with others.
FEST has already exhibited at Textiles in Focus, nr. Cambridge and twice at the Fashion & Embroidery Show at Harrogate. In April 2007 the group are exhibiting at Blickling Hall, Norfolk and again at the Warner Archive, Braintree, Essex, in Spring 2008.
