Last week I did a very brief piece on the work of Bernie Leahy One of the advantages of writing In a Minute Ago is that I sometimes get a sneak preview of work about to be placed in the public eye. Bernie Leahy is working on a series of stitched drawings for a solo exhibition ‘Line’ that is due to open on June 2nd at Fabrications Gallery, London. This is a piece recently worked for the show. If you are in London check it out. I think it looks to be a very interesting exhibition.

A textile practitioners we often have to take photos, scan, store and manage collections of images of our work. Capture your collections is designed as a course to educate and assist volunteers and curators of regional, museums, to manage the process of image digitisation and storage. The course has been developed by the Canadian Heritage Information Network (CHIN) and Australian Museums and Galleries Online (AMOL). Although as artists we are dealing with many of these issues on a small scale there is much on the site that I think will be useful.
I have been following a mystery which I have had no luck in solving. It suddenly hit me that I could put a call out here. I received an email asking what the Swedish stitch “Solleroseam” was. If anyone can enlighten me please let me know.
Since we have 300 contributions to the Wisdom of the ages I thought it was worth while digging out an image. This is a section of a sign that was burnt – it is the texture that caught my eye.
