Changing Threads exhibition and cairo appliqué

New Zealand textile artists - entry forms due on Thursday this week to Changing Threads exhibition in Nelson.

Changing Threads entry forms

A few posts ago I talked about the Egyptian applique guys, the tentmakers. The film makers are at about 60% of the fees needed to make the documentary. If you were thinking of sending money please do it before it is too late. If they don't get enough pledges by the end of this month (which is a short month) the money doesn't come out of your account and the dock doesn't get made. I reckon it is worth doing and if you pledge enough you get a dvd and/or a tshirt so thats a bonus!

Here is the link again to the tentmakers.

    Thanks for your support and for helping let people know about our project. We are really close and really hope that there are enough people out there who want to see not only this film made but also want to support the work of the Tentmakers of Cairo. So if people are keen please come and at least take a look at the short video of Hosam El Farouk to get a taste of what we are hoping to make. So go to
