Last night was the catwalk show. It is noticeable that the attendance is down. I guess about 500 people. I have attended when there were over 1500. This is partly shown up in the yardage exhibition where there were 18 pieces on display. In the last few years it has been 28 to 30. The standard has not gone up noticeably.
There was a talk today by the juror of yardage which was very interesting but not helpful. She was careful to say nothing in the way of criticism
I visited the exhibitions this afternoon and walked round to the Milwaukee library where there was an exhibition of small tapestry. Really intricate work and lots of entries.
Tomorrow we are visiting Complexity, the Complex Weavers show. It is a long way and we have decided to take a taxi.
