Back this year, after UK tour, Afghanistan Inspiration. This is a part of a German-Afghanistan project, which you can read a lot more about here . Some of you might remember me writing about this project 2 years ago, when I first learnt about it at this show.
This part of the project is to help Afghan women to retain their embroidery craft, and at the same time earn some money. They embroider small squares, which they get paid for, and those are then sold in Europe. Many European artists incorporate them in their work, which is a part of a competition "Threads Unite Women".
These are the 3 squares I bought this time.
Then there was a small exhibition of costumes "Jane Austen - Fashion and Films".
Exhibition by WI from their collections.
A pretty Madelaine Millington's stand, you can see more of her stuff here .
and other interesting "side shows"
