My Blue Jumper (2012, ongoing) was in an exhibition of "thoughtfully mended textiles", called ...by a thread... at Gawthorpe Hall in June 2016.
The exhibition aims to explore ideas around mending, after a year of building renovation and repair at the hall itself. From the curator:
"While the stonework within the Hall was being mended - quite invisibly - we became interested in repair which did the opposite. We started looking for examples of mending which were visible and actually made a feature of wear and tear. We discovered that with textile items, repair can be storytelling, creative and commemorative. It can add something extra and bring new meaning and emotion to an object. It can tell us more about people, history, memories and lives."
