If you are in London do try and get to the "Stitching the Square: an exhibition of Banjara Embroidery from India" exhibition referred to above at Joss Graham's gallery. Yesterday I went to the excellent symposium Joss had organised. Tim McLaughlin and Charllotte Kwon shared their knowledge based on their research over the last 12 years and we saw slides of various photos in their new book on the Banjara. We also had a preview of the exhibition at Joss Graham's gallery as well as seeing (and handling) many lovely, richly coloured and finely workd Banjara pieces from three collectors, some of whose pieces are photographed in the book. Altogether a lovely time appreciating the wonderful Banjara embroidery, appliqué and quilting.

Some of the new Banjara textiles which Maiwa Handprints are sourcing from 'Surya's Garden' with whom they have been working for several years were available to buy and will, I think, also be accompanying the exhibition. I was very impressed by their quality which was a joy to see. I could not resist a lovely, small - 10cm when closed, contemporary version of the traditional kalchi (envelope bag).
