An exhibition of textiles by members of the East Midland Region of the Embroiderers’ Guild who have taken part in the KickStart programme 2011/2012
Movement, Muscle and Metabolism

How to Enter
Complete the entry form and return to Jenny Ashmore by 31st March 2012. This allows us time to assess the space needed at Regional Day, to arrange insurance and print labels etc.  Please enclose s.a.e. if you require your entry to be acknowledged. (I can't attach the form here contact Jenny or myslef for a copy)

Movement, Muscle and Metabolism celebrates the work of people who have taken part in the KickStart programme and the committee seeks to display every entry, however the committee and the museum reserve the right not to display work.

It is important that your works are secure whilst on display. All works should have mirror plates attached in order to be hung securely. Three-dimensional work will be displayed in glass cabinets.  Please include any special instructions for installation and we will do our best to accommodate these. Entries may be for sale but please note that the Museum charges 25% commission.

Delivery and collection of work.
All work to be completed ready to hang and handed in at: Daventry Branch’s Festival of Stitch, Caroline Chisholm School, Wooldale Road, Wootton, NN4 6TP on 28th April, 2012 or taken to Mansfield Museum,  Leeming Street, Mansfield, Notts. NG18 1NG ( on 2nd May, 2012 at 10.30am.  If neither of these is possible please contact Jenny Ashmore by email or on the number below.

Please arrange for your work to be collected from the Museum between 10 - 10.30 am prompt on Wednesday 6th June.

Work must be suitably packed and protected. Collect together packaging materials (strong boxes, bubble wrap, tissue paper etc.) well in advance. All packaging materials should have both your name and the title of the work on them. Make sure that you have a large enough outer container (e.g. Box/Calico bag) and labelled with title/s and your name so that all packaging  materials can be stored inside for re-packing at the end of the exhibition. Remember to enclose clear brief hanging instructions e.g. any props needed and indicate which way up .Please use masking tape or elastic bands NOT sellotape.

Attach a luggage label to the back of the work with a long enough string to allow the label to hang in front of the work but not long enough to hang below the piece when on display.

Work will be insured whilst in the gallery and whilst in store with me or my representative.  Work travelling to the Regional Day is the responsibility of the artist.

There is no Hanging Fee and members may submit as many pieces as they wish.

If there any problems or if you need clarification please contact Jenny Ashmore,  tel: 0115 939 4502, Email:
