Forum members in the UK may be aware of the Knitting and Stitching Shows. Aside from lots to buy the shows incorporate exhibitions. This year these include 'Miao Embroidery' which is curated by June Hill and features the collection of Gina Corrigan.

...this exhibition features over fifty pieces that illustrate the rich heritage of embroidered clothes still worn by the Miao people Pleating Decorative Techniques (embroidery and wax resist) Case studies from Gina Corrigan's collection...

See more info on exhibit as third item at http://www.twistedthread.com/knittingan ... atures.asp

The shows are:
NEC Birmingham (13-16 Sep 07)
Alexandra Palace London (11-14 Oct 07)
RDS Dublin (1-4 Nov 07)
International Halls Harrogate (22-25 Nov 07) but this last has a separate programme still be be published.

I know from talking to Gina last year that this exhibit has been in the planning for a considerable period of time. I hope to get to the Alexandra Palace London venue in October.

I visited the exhibit at Alexandra Palace today. It is well staged and with some very nice examples of Miao and Dong textiles. They are identified for general location although not with great detail. However, Gina Corrigan is at the exhibit to consult on all of the days of the exhibition at the 4 venues. I was familiar with most of the pieces on display but enjoyed very much seeing the fine examples and found again my sense of wonder at the fineness of the techniques utilised to create them. The quality of the display showed them off at their best. Regrettably no photography is allowed.

Both of the technique books based on Gina's collection and researched by the group of textile experts/enthusiasts to whom she has given access to her collection are available at the exhibit. http://www.tribaltextiles.info/communit ... php?t=1034 http://www.tribaltextiles.info/communit ... .php?t=286 Ruth Smith who wrote the embroidery book and edited the more general techniques book is also at the exhibit.

I was very gratified to hear from Gina that 4 people had already visited the exhibit at Alexandra Palace saying that they had found details of it from this thread on the forum!
