Design Wall

Here's the design wall at Access Space with all the current patches. Clare Ruddock has used gold thread to embroider the Access Space logo on the center patch.

Make a Diff

Julian Priest's patch is number 009933, and he has embroidered the words 'Make a Diff'. A Diff is a software patch - the process of comparing 2 files, and creating a patch file to reconcile the difference. He stitched his patch at the Getty Museum in LA, and posted it to Access Space inside a 3D card of the Museum (see photo).

You can read Julian's brilliant posting on how to make a software patch on the Html Patchwork Wiki

Gathering Patches

Here's a selection of the Banff patches. This week we're putting up the Open Source Embroidery Exhibition at Access Space, ready for the opening on Friday. As usual there seems to be too much to do in four days, but we'll get there. In the meantime patches are being posted from around the world.

I'm really looking forward to meeting the Totley Quilters in Sheffield this evening. If you're in Sheffield, or passing through over the next couple of months do pop in and have a look at the Html Patchwork design wall. It will be on display until November 10th 2007.
