Creative Sewing holds exhibition at Newbridge's Riverbank Arts Centre

Members of the Creative Sewing group with their award winning quilts

The Rathangan Creative Sewing group is getting set to host an exhibit at the children’s gallery at the Riverbank Arts Centre, Newbridge.

Titled ‘A Stitch in Time’, this exhibition is a wonderful opportunity for the kids at Creative Sewing in Rathangan to show off their prize winning quilts and a chance for others to be inspired by these fabulous colourful pieces of textile art.

There are 19 art pieces on exhibition in total and a sewing workshop will take place at the Riverbank on Saturday, February 16, 11am-1pm, for all kids to enjoy.

The Creative Sewing group is run by designer Aideen Cross at her studio in Rathangan.

She takes kids aged 7 to 14 years for her junior weekly classes and workshops.

The exhibition opens on January 10 and runs until February 23, with the official launch on January 19 at 4pm.

All are welcome to come and chat to these talented children.

Meanwhile, Aideen will host a Patchwork Magic workshop at the Riverbank on Saturday February 16. The workshop will give children the opportunity to work with new and recycled fabrics to make fun creative bunting.
