Textile Plus Group: A Thread of an Idea

Textile Plus is a group of textile artists who live and exhibit in Cornwall, each with a variety of skills and interests. They work with fabric, fibre and thread creating embroidery, patchwork and quilting, felt, beadwork and jewellery.   

The current group members are very pleased to exhibit, once again, at The Poly.  The work presented this time has been created over the past three years. As they have not been able to attend their usual monthly meetings, they have each had to find their own way forward and follow a thread of an idea, going where it led them, to their own individual conclusions.

Featuring work by:

Lindsay Jane Griffiths

Marion Newby

Valerie Packford

Anne Richards

Jill Rickard

Bobbin Saunders

Eileen Tregaskis

Molly Tufnell

Gill Vasey

Di Wells



A Thread of an Idea:  

Exhibition open: Tuesday 9th November to Saturday 13th November, 10.00am–4.00pm.

The Poly continues to recommend wearing a face covering (unless you are exempt), thinking social distance, and sanitising your hands on arrival.
