Pauline BARNES (England)
I started sewing when I was 6 years old and since then have tried everything that involved needles, threads and fabrics! I owned a fabric shop and was a self-employed dressmaker for many years, but on completion of C&G Patchwork & Quilting, and Machine Embroidery, I gave up dressmaking in favour of quilting. I started to exhibit my work whilst studying a 3-year Design Course and was accepted as a Member of the Society of Designer Craftsmen. I have won many awards over the last 18 years and my work has been exhibited in the UK, the rest of Europe, Canada and USA. I have been teaching textile-related subjects since 1992 and am an Invited Judge for The Quilters Guild of the British Isles.
AFGHAN SQUARES (Europe – Afghanistan)
- For this new challenge, 130 European women created drafts that were embroidered by Afghan artists and enriched. Then back in Europe the works were completed, each illustrating the theme of cookware, sharing both lifestyles and cultures. This exhibition is the result of a partnership between two associations: Textile-Resonance (France) and Deutsch- Afghanische Initiative (Germany).
To illustrate her favourite subject “trees”, Muriel paints, tints, “rusts”, deconstructs, heats several materials and vegetal papers together then embroiders using free piqué, enhancing the work, by hand, with pearls and unusual materials.

KANTHA EMBROIDERY (India)
Inherited from a centuries-old tradition that has now disappeared, the Kantha embroidery magnified the work of recovered used fabrics, now lives again and perpetuates between the hands of a thousand women from Bengal several traditional or contemporary themes on silks and various weaves. It is an Indian NGO “SHE Foundation” relayed by “SHE France” that supports these artisans.
Alongside the Khanta exhibition, Shamlu Dudedja, a grand Lady from Kolkata (also known as Calcutta), has performed a presentation of saris used depending on the circumstances of a social life, according to regional customs or by age…Dozens of different draperies added to our western research to make these 6m of fabric, often made of well- slippery silk.
Gabrielle likes to mix the fabrics as much as the colours. She develops an original concept: the double stripe with striped fabrics themselves recombined in bands, from light to dark. The red often punctuates her works.
