A stitch in time: Summer textile exhibition at Ely's Babylon Gallery

SIX textile artists from Stitch Links have their work on show at The Babylon Gallery in Ely until July 1.
The women work together as a collective, to produce a contemporary body of work that reflects on modern life.
The exhibition is called ‘Reworking The Image’. Although the artists have a common interest in textile art, they work in a diversity of styles, ranging from large scale installations, to sculpture, small and intimate pieces, and colourful hand and machine-embroidery.
The Stitch Links exhibition held at the gallery two years ago drew more than 3,000 visitors, and organisers anticipate a lot of interest in the new work.
In addition to the work on display, there is an eye-catching collection of cushions and other small textile items for sale in the gallery shop, which have been designed especially for this show.
