Yesterday’s launch was not affected by the appalling weather in Hebden Bridge. I had just forgotten that Summer in our valley involves a brolly! There was a great turnout and the new Mayor of Hebden, Councillor Susan Press, braved the weather in all her finery to attend in the afternoon – she even treated herself to a beautiful glass hanging by one of my new designer/makers, Liesel Barker.
Locally bought Scottish strawberries were served with either pink fizz, bucks fizz or fresh orange juice creating the right atmosphere to celebrate summer in Heart Gallery.
My favourite pieces in Heart Gallery at the moment are the fantastic ‘alternative’ to the jewellery box by lovely mother and daughter team, Becks and Susan. The girls even made the ten hour round trip to Heart Gallery yesterday and they had a great time meeting other makers and chatting with customers. You will not be disappointed with their amazing textile work so here are some images to whet your appetite but do please call in to see how these wonderful pieces look after your jewellery so perfectly. I truly believe that no dressing table should be without one … enjoy!
