The description of ‘A Black Tie Affair ‘ in The Adelaide Review contained “An intimate experience of the extraordinary detail of the ‘drawn’ stitch. This visual feast of stitched narratives in the form of wall-art, men’s one-off waistcoats, bow-ties, hats and colourful paintings all respond and celebrate the title.”
Over 150 Guests dressed in black tie outfits to celebrate the opening and listen to Melinda Rankin open the exhibition which this year had in addition to the free machine embroidered wall pieces and acrylic paintings had a major emphasis on art to wear with bespoke mens waistcoats, bow ties and ladies hats
More than 1000 visited the exhibition during SALA and over 20 people gave Cheryl the ultimate compliment by becoming the permanent owner of her creativity .
