Sheila Dalgleish

I have been involved in some form of needlework for as long as I can remember. Eventually I realised that quilting was the way, and I have gradually built the confidence to develop my own style. As a Geography graduate (a very, very long time ago), I have always had a particular interest in landscape, and most of the work I have done in the past few years reflects this. I have shared two exhibitions with Mairi Wheeler, and several with Freewheeling. In 2015 I finally dared to go it alone, with an exhibition in Edinburgh. The theme was 'North'. I had actually thought this would be a one-off, but almost since that first exhibition closed, people asked when the next one would be. Consequently, 'North and South' took place at the beginning of February 2018. I had such fun with this, meeting so many people, both quilters and non-quilters. The gallery I used, in Edinburgh city centre, was in the heart of 'gallery - land' and so I had a lot of passing trade from people who had never seen textile art before. I am hoping that I have managed to progress the acceptance of textiles as art just a little bit. Now time has passed, and incredibly I am working up to a third solo exhibition, which will happen in February 2020. Maybe I'll see you there?
