Here’s an extract from the website which explains a bit about the group:

About 10+ Textiles

Ten Plus Textiles was formed in 1991 by ten textile artists based in the North West who wanted to work together and promote an appreciation of embroidery in all its forms. Since then the group has grown in number to sixteen.

Members have developed their own individual styles, using a range of techniques, but all have the common aim of working with fibres and fabric to promote a greater appreciation of contemporary textile art. From fine hand and machine embroidery, patchwork, quilting and beadwork, to weaving, hand-made felt and paper, collage and mixed media, the members create work that demonstrates both the aesthetics of modern design and the unique surface qualities of the decorative stitch. Their work is rich, luxurious and ornate in texture and colour and represents a fusion of traditional textile methods with original and inventive ideas and creations.
