Crunchcandy and other crafty types, do you know about this? It looks rather interesting...
"Handicrafts such as knitting, crochet and sewing have been going through a bit of a renaissance for awhile now.
What with all these Stitch n' Bitch sessions along with Knit Flick screenings happening all over our fair old town.
Entitled 'Western Day of the Dead' the show promises a heady mix of American-Mexicana, an amalgam of appliquéd skulls, tooled leather panels,handcrafted accessories and a rather spectacular life-size horse, embellished from mane to hoof, of course.
Forget about pretty and twee, this is needle craft with attitude. Part fashion, part art and part, err, well, mental."
