One Response to About me

  1. Hi Ruth

    I was an exhibitor at the Festival of Quilts at the same time as you in 2009 and I am writing to you to ask for your support as I understand that there will not be a Further Education gallery at the festival this year. I and several others including some of my students (I now teach C&G) who were invited to exhibit there last year feel that it would be such a shame to lose this valuable showcase for budding textile artists.

    Please read this from a fellow student –

    ‘I do not know how many of you are aware that Andrew Salmon is no longer having a C&G student gallery at FOQ. I think this is a real shame for all C&G students as they will not be able to have the chance to experience exhibiting in such a huge and prestigious exhibition as we all did in 2009.

    Please could you all inform your tutors of this situation (even if you have completed your course) as many of the tutors are not aware that this opportunity is being withdrawn from FOQ.

    Also if you feel it was an experience not to be missed and should be available for future students, perhaps a short email to Andrew might help to change the plans.

    If you could write to Andrew asking him to reconsider this decision I would be most grateful’
