Demonstrating at The Scottish Parliament

I was honoured to be invited to be part of Creative Scotland's Parliamentary Reception 2015.
"The event helps to raise the profile, amongst our elected politicians, of the range and breadth of artistic and creative excellence in Scotland and serves to highlight its importance to life in Scotland, across all parts of our society and across all parts of our country." (Creative Scotland)
It was a bit of a surreal experience sitting with my sewing machine in the Garden Lobby at Holyrood. MSP's even joined in to help me create a new piece of work!
Amongst the many talented guests, we heard music from the wonderful Claire Hastings (BBC Radio Scotland's young traditional musician of the year) and a poem from Liz Lochead (Scotland's Makar)
A wonderful evening celebrating art and culture.
