Pulse 2012 and on to Cove Park...

So I got back to Glasgow nearly four weeks ago after exhibiting at Pulse for the first time! It was a great experience and lovely to meet up with some familiar faces and meet new ones. Thanks to everyone who came along and visited my stand during the three days, it was definitely lovely to meet everyone....buyers, bloggers, press, other exhibitors etc.  If I had to pick one highlight it would be getting to see the beautiful scarves and gloves of Hilary Grant Knitwear & Textiles in the flesh....her work is amazing and made me excited about the Winter!

The last few weeks have flown by with leads from Pulse and here I am now back in the lovely surroundings of Cove Park for two weeks to catch my breath. I was lucky enough to be here for six weeks last Summer on the Scottish Craft Residency where I began to develop my luggage adventure. It is a real treat to return and have the opportunity to a spell of time and space to develop new things for later on in the year. One of the things that's coming up that I'm really excited about is being asked to do an exhibition at The Lighthouse in October as part of their Show Studio series. Katy West, their  creative programmer, has asked a variety of designers to take part including Black Arches - the talented Mhari McMullan. Her show opens on the 4th August, if you get the chance I would definitely go and see it...
