Gina is part of our Postman's Knock postcard project. She's a wonderful textile artist and it was a real treat to see all her work. I specially liked her pieces where she draws with stitches, using machine or hand stitching as a means of mark-making. But the biggest treat was the opportunity to look through Gina's sketchbooks which were absolutely fantastic and inspirational -- they were really everything that sketchbooks can be, showing the working through and deepening of ideas and that intense level of thinking where an artist pushes through an idea and breaks out on the other side to something really wonderful.
You've still got next weekend to see Gina's work: Saturday and Sunday 16 and 17 July, 11am to 6pm, 49 Hay Street, Steeple Morden, SG8 0PD.
